Got back today from yet another trip, this time to 司马台 (Simatai) and 金山岭 (Jinshanling) two parts of the Great Wall that are nearly connected, but are interrupted by a narrow river. It was just me and my girl Silvy this time, communicating in broken Chinese with the locals, sliding/falling down hills, sweating, climbing a billion steps. The trip was brief, difficult, immensely beautiful. 长城很好看。

Silvia has a blog entry
that goes into much more loving detail.



Overlooking 金山岭.

Ice cream break. We climbed very, very high up.

Blind musician outside of the circus-like entrance to 司马台.

Lots of corn stalk in a nearly abandoned village.

Silvia-
You look like you are walking through a city park in your photos- it's a great skill to be able to look good during a near-death experience. I'm glad you and Ross are experiencing China together.
