ABC Wednesday: G for great things in China


Our guide, Arnold, calls the group together to climb the Great Wall of China.
Dick joined the climb, but I didn't go.


 We went through the Three Gorges Dam at night, but it was still very exciting.

 Dick gauges the water level as marked on the inside of the massive dam.

Wow, that's a lot of people trudging up the Great Wall. I don't know if I could have made it either.
It looks like you had a fascinating trip.

That looks like a very long climb, if you ask me. You were wise to not go. :))

Kay said...

How exciting! We've got China in our headlights for next year. Gosh! Those look like a LOT of steps and I HATE steps! Fabulous photos, Kay and Dick!

So picturesque to see colorful umbrellas being carried up the Great Wall. It certainly has our 1001 Steps beat for a walking challenge!!

I would love to visit and see the Great Wall. I have bad knees, so climbing the stairs may take some time. What a wonderful trip you must have had!

Carver said...

You have definitely had some great trips and are generous to share your photos through your blog. Carver, ABC Wednesday Team

It would be neat to walk the Great Wall, or, rather, part of it, and, for some reason, I think the locks on the river would be more exciting at night!

Nice shots, Kay!

I'm not so sure I could make that climb up the wall. Was the view worth it, according to your hubby?

This wall is an enormous piece of work. This is a lot more impressive than the Hadrian wall. China is a country I should like to see.
I hope you'll have a great rest of the week, Kay!
Next week this time I shall be on my way to the airport to catch my plane to Israel.
