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
At the Great Wall —
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!!
