Day 2 {Beijing}

The Great Wall

On our way....


Look Indiana friends, there is more than corn in China too!!!

We visited a Cloisonne factory.   Very cool to see how they make these beautiful vases.



I love signs in China!  Too funny!

Had to ride a lift up to the top of the mountain to our starting point on the wall!
