I have spent 7 days in Beijing, China so far and have had such a great experience. I have met many people from different countries. People from: New Zealand; Oman; Indonesia; Georgia, USA; Korea; Japan; China; Australia; students from Taking it Globally; and many others.
I climbed (& crawled) up the Great wall and sat on it! These last steps were as high as my knees, so I felt like a baby on them. But I did it! By myself, I walked up to the closed cable car (just like Bill Clinton) and rode that up to the platform then up the graded trail to the steps on the right! For someone who is very afraid of heights this was a great achievement! On the way down I closed my eyes in the cable car and took a video of the trip down!
