It's gotten bitterly cold here in China, but that hasn't stopped our intrepid group of Wednesday hikers from heading out to wander the mountains around Beijing. So as I look forward to a day of family and pasta next week, I wanted to share with you some of the sights around here. Far outside the kitsch of Beijing, there's nothing but Great Wall, rolling hills, and some very chilly hardcore hikers.
|And no wise-guy comments this time. The Wall was broken before I got there.|
