Sacred Way, Great Wall, Summer Palace

On Saturday, we had a nice stroll down the Sacred Way of Ming Tombs where stone statues of soldiers and animals have stood guard since 1435.

In the afternoon, we explored the Great Wall of China. Mom and Dad took the easy path while Cameron and I took the more difficult and less crowded direction. While it was nice to have fewer people to contend with, we were confronted by 92 vendors trying to pawn of t-shirts, postcards, and useless trinkets. Their constant prodding took away from the breathtaking views (and steep inclines).

Today, Sunday, we flew to Xian. Before doing so, we visited the Summer Palace in Beijing.
