Weekly Photo Challenge:Broken

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Broken.”

For centuries a chain of fortifications kept the inhabitants of Greater China safe from attack from the Mongol Hordes. Today it lies mostly in ruins – scavenged to almost nothing.

This was one of the towers at a section of the Great Wall at Jinshangling.

  2. I want to see that wall some day


    1. That’s a good goal to have. We would go back in a heartbeat! If you do go you can’t go wrong with the Jinshanling section to the north of Beijing (4 hours by bus)

      1. thanks for that tip, because I’ve seen videos of the wall (somewhere) where there were wall-to-wall people crushing each other. I DON’T want to see that.

      2. Yep that’s Badaling – the nearest section to central Beijing. The key we found, when picking the best spots to visit was a trade off between ease of access and wealth of discovery – The harder to get to that temple/city/lagoon etc the better experience you will have once you get there and the greater the reward for that hard journey!

      3. I’m pondering where to go this summer. I’d rather not do China solo, but…


      4. Our friends did an organised tour – not as flexible as doing it yourself but most tours include the main sites and experiences so it is almost as good as..
