A dispatch of the Great Wall


“He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man. “This famous Chinese idiom shows how fabulous the Great Wall is. As one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Wall has already become a place of interest where foreigners cannot miss in China.

As we all know autumn is the best season of Beijing and September 11 was particularly a glorious day for travel. On that Friday, we students, teacherCamellia Liu and four Chinese Law School students visited the Mutianyu Great Wall together to have fun. During the two hours bus-trip, the beautiful guide Jolin introduced to us many of China’scustoms and local conditions Especially the delicious food .Finally ,we reached our first stop—the restaurant where we were going to have lunch. With the delicious Chinese food, students had pleasant talks during the lunch.

Having got enough energy, we set up for the Great Wall. The cable car took us to the hillside, with the green trees and mountains going backward. At the platform we had a rest, the mountain carved with the words “loyal to Chairman Mao” came into our sight. Though tired and far ,All students kept walking all the time and we took a lot of photos. Two hours latter, we reached the top !

Escaped from the polluted and crowded city, the beautiful scenery and the fresh air left a great impression on us. I think the Great Wall trip for each of us is a happy and unforgettableexperience.

We are looking forward to our next trip and our Hot pot dinner.
