Welcome to Geezerdom
We went to the Great Wall today and upon arrival John presented me with a ticket for the cable car to take a trip up to the peak of the wall and said "Welcome to Geezerdom!" I'm glad to have gotten the ticket as it was a long hike up to the wall and it was cold, icey and slippery. Even some of the steps along the wall are over 2 feet high so it is no easy journey. I didn't need a repeat performance of Yellow Mtn. The wall was built for defense and it is an incredible display of human labour. In places millions of people lost their lives building this 10,000 mile display of strength.
