the great wall of china.

Day ten/eleven: Beijing, China. We made it to Beijing! I almost forgot how great this city is. We went to the Great Wall (Mutianyu entrance) and it was just as fun as last time; except today was much hotter than Februarys weather:
^^We woke up a little earlier and made it to the wall before too many people were there.^^
^^Kisses on the Great Wall.^^
^^The Temple of Heaven^^
At one point a butterfly landed on my hand and stayed there for a few minutes while we were hiking. A local mentioned that when a butterfly lands on you it's good luck; she said I will have an "extraordinary life" because it stayed on me for so long... sweet!

Last time we road the toboggan down the Great Wall and we had to do it again. We had so much fun that we almost climbed the Great Wall again just to ride the slide down. 

The next morning we went to Tianamen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Temple of Heaven (see our visits back in February here and here). We're so sad Tate's parents are heading back to America, but the backpacking adventure continues! Beijing, I love you.

Next destination: Yangshuo, China.
