What I did this summer . . .

Went to the Great Wall today - ok, that was amazing. Even with the smog.
They have an amazing subway system here too. It goes everywhere! Not as cheap as México City (free / 5 pesos / .28 cents), but much faster and cleaner.

I had a good time though! After the tour, the other tourist - a girl from Korea, and I went to a restaurant for Peking duck. OMG. Our tour guide recommended the restaurant and a side dish of cabbage with sesame oil and a sauce akin to hoisin. The duck and cabbage were both amazing! Unfortunately the restaurant is about 3 blocks from where I'm staying - I may have to go back!
The only downside of my trip so far is being cut off from Facebook. Maybe I should just enjoy the respite.

BJ - I'm just amazed and the amount of foot traffic on the Great Wall Is that typical throughout the day, or is it somewhat like rush hour in any American city, heavy during mornings and evenings and lighter during the day?
My body is a shell; I will modify it.
Death is a disease; I will cure it.
Extinction is ever-looming; I will fight it.
