We went to the Great Wall last saturday, men oh men... magnificient!

Located in Jiuduhe Town, the Huanghuacheng Lakeside Great Wall was built in the second year during the reign of Yong Le in the Ming Dynasty. A reservoir built nearby in 1970s transformed the look of the Wall, submerging it at three places, hence its name.

We went to a place that hasn't been renovated in the last 600 years or so. So it was ripped in some places and so real in a way. You could feel the power of nature. It is really amazing how this wall was built and I wonder about the placements, they didn't pick the easiest spots, o no no..
