After arriving back in Beijing, and only a couple hrs sleep, we were up and gone by 7:45 the next morning for yet another day of touring.
Today we finally got to go to the Great Wall!!! I've always wanted to see the Great Wall, long before my accident, and after taking part in the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary, even more so.
I'm not sure which part of the wall that Rick was on during his world tour, but I managed to get on it as well. It was incredibly difficult, but I pushed up a section just like Rick did. When I got to the top I was completely spent!! It was an emotional moment to say the least.
Then we were off to see the Summer Palace, and then the Temple of Heaven. Last stop was a Chinese market, and we were back by 7pm.
