(29/06/2006) Day Forty-nine: Beijing -> Great Wall


Weather: Rained in the morning, fine by noon

Today we woke up super early and decided against going to the wall because it was raining.

So instead we posted our stuff and picked up supplies for Mongolia.

After that we caught a local bus to the wall and climbed it ..

The weather was fine!  Had a great time and bargained for a chairman mao watch (20Y) and then picked up some other things.

Tried to catch a bus back and got caught in a stampede .. then we metro’d to the markets where final purchases were done..

Afterwards we came back and had Beijing noodles late at night (it was raining – every taxi was full!), then we packed up our stuff ready to leave.
