The Great Wall of China!!!

Hello from the Great Wall of China!!! We saw the 7th Wonder of the World yesterday and it was something to behold!!!!!!!!! The wall was huge and amazing!!!!!!!!!! It went on and on and on and on....

The girls and I walked the Great Wall and loved the exercise and being able to stretch out legs!!! I'm not sure what the elevation was up there, but I could definately feel it!

The girls are EXCELLENT sightseers!!!!!!!!! EVERYONE in China is amazed by the girls and EVERYONE takes pictures of them. People will come up to us wherever we go and start taking pictures of us and want to know who we are and what we are doing in China. Many times our guide, named Nancy, will translate our situation. They touch all the girl's hair and want to hold Ahnya! They all want pictures with the girls. The chinese are infatuated with Gabriella's white-blonde hair. And everyone thinks Jocelyn is chinese! We get giggles out of all these incounters!

Beijing is about 70 degrees and very comfortable. We have not slept yet and are very eager to go to bed tonight and try to get on China time schedule! Here's Nana and me on the Great Wall of China. What a journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gabriella and Jocelyn want to say "Hi" to all their friends at Holy Redeemer and of course Ella and Annie Bourne!!!! We are having a great time and miss you all! We promise to bring something special to you from China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See you in a couple weeks!!!

I just knew they would be doing that but it's out of respect and awe that they do! Can't help but touch beautiful little girls! Looks like they are being sooo good and you are having a GREAT time!!
