Great Wall of China
laid brick, by brick, by brick
so many people

    1. Yes, the whole trip to China was mind boggling. The earliest parts of the wall were build in the seventh century BC. Can you imagine what life was like for those folks back then? Or think of the width of the wall being built so that ten soldiers could stand abreast, or five horses. It is just incredible.

  2. Joy,
    These are very nice photos. I almost feel like I'm there.
