April 20 Sunday

Really wish I had taken pictures of all the stations for breakfast: Pancakes, French toast, chinese pancakes(some kind of flat egg thing with stuff in it) really great, eggs to order, omelets, dumplings, meats, rice, all kinds of pastries and breads, muffins, donuts even fruit for the health nuts.

Then off to the Great Wall at Badaling Hills. The wall once stretched 6200 miles, is 28 f high where we were and ten people can walk side by side along it. The walk from the bus to the village was uphill, as was the walk from there to the base of the wall. And  then it was all uphill. We went north on the wall. It looked easier. Most locals go south because Mao did and told everyone to walk the wall and be a hero. Larry is the guy in red with the yellow hat.

We then toured the Sacred Way of the Ming tombs after lunch

After a short break we went for a Peking Duck dinner. The crisp skin is legendary.

Sacred Way and the birds nest. The red stuff are prayer things left by visitors

Peking Duck Dinner: Duck cut into 128 pieces. Put some on a pancake with veggies and hosien? sauce. And yep, that is a fish head and all. Lights in lobby outside restaurant.
