Beijing!

We're here! Today was the Great Wall!

Riley loved the wall!  He "just" wanted to go to the top!  We made it to tower number nine before calling it a day.  My legs were jello on the way down, but ole Riles was going strong.  It was very cold...literally freezing, but we stayed warm from the steep climb.

  2. We have the option of leaving a few days early and touring Beijing. Please let me know how it goes. What to see and not see. I hear it is crazy cold there in January, of course I'm in Alabama and we are not use to cold weather. Can't wait to see Jada in your arms!

  8. We just went to Badaling. The photos I've posted mostly were close to the bottom, with the museum in the background. We only climbed to tower nine. There were 2 more that we could see, but there were likely more to go than that!
