Beijing and visiting the Great Wall of China on Christmas Day. Day 4

December 27, 2012

So after a morning of stocking filled celebrations in our hotel rooms we headed down for a family breakfast where I managed to get my favorite – poached eggs!!! Yay, what a great Christmas treat 🙂 yes small things make Nina very happy in a foreign country!

So pretty much after stuffing our faces with food and more food and then gearing up for the cold we headed off to go check out the Great Wall. And yes, no matter what people say, it definitely is a very impressive sight! Just the sheer size and expanse of the wall is amazing. And even though it was freezing cold there were quite a few people out and about – I don’t want to know what it would be like in summer!!!

There are some pics up on facebook already, and as soon as I can get some uploaded here i’ll add them to this blog.

    Nina is the best travel buddie to have. Her calming nature and peaceful aura keeps the family in good and calm spirits. Taking everything in her stride and never making a fuss or complaint about all the difficult challenges. When things get particularly challenging (like communal open squats), Nina’s coping mechanism is to laugh. This gets us all cracked up so generally we spend a lot of time laughing. It is a pleasure watching Nina enjoying all the local veggie dishes and absorbing the local culture we are getting exposed to. This trip is definitely a challenging one and me and my family are truly lucky to have Nina with us to share the amazing experience. Thanks Ninakins, I couldn’t do this without you xxx La.
