|That's the wall on top of the mountain.|
It really wasn't that bad of a hike and before we knew it we were on top of the Great Wall of China.
Andrew celebrated making it to the top with a beer. Because if climbing the Great Wall of China doesn't earn you a beer, really what does?
The views from the top were pretty spectacular. The wall went off into the horizon on both sides.
After a walk down the wall we headed back down.
|We had a serious feast|
It was all very delicious and spicy, and we capped it off with a bottle of Bai Jiu, the local liquor. They don't sip liquor here--they have tiny shot glasses, and everyone takes these mini shots together at various points through the meal. It was some strong stuff.
When looking through Chinese menus, you come across some strange things, and this one needed a picture taken of it. It was called Sichuan Sister Hairy Belly and yes, that is stomach with the furry lining. We were glad they didn't order this.
After the meal we took a walk around the famous Ghost Street of Beijing, known for its many restaurants.
On our walk we came across the coolest Starbucks ever. Yes this is a Starbucks.
