I had such an amazing time. Any one want to come to China and do it with me?
I arrived in the early morning on Saturday, ate my breakfast in Tiananmen Square and some English speaking Chinese teachers started talking to me. We went to a traditional tea ceremony and then they bought me a turtle. (It died.) Then I went with a tour group of 6 (total) to the Great Wall. Everything was provided, the food, the beer, the sleeping bags, and the transportation. I came back to Zhengzhou on Sunday, around midnight.
It was wonderful!

|Sometimes the hike meant that we|
couldn't be on the Great Wall.
Some of the wall was not safe.
|Brushed my teeth off the Great Wall.|

a tea ceremony and bought me a turtle.
The turtle's name is Jackie Chan.
