The Great Wall

Saturday, May 31, 2014

We finally made it to the Great Wall! On the way there, our buses stopped at a Jade Factory. Oh, my! What beautiful things!
 This exquisitely detailed ship is at the entrance to the factory

I liked seeing these playful puppies — so different from most jade carvings you see

 One of many chests, inlaid with jade scenes

I fell in love with this bowl!! Unfortunately, I think the price was somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000.

Other tourists at The Wall

This is the entrance to the ladies bathroom

 People buy these wooden flags (?) — not sure what to call them — and write on them their wishes or their troubles and then hang them on the trees for what they call good luck.
And, who would guess you can buy corn-on-the-cob at the Great Wall of China!!
