We shared the same cable car heading up the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu!
One of the most fun parts of our visit to the Great Wall was our toboggan ride down…you read that right…check out our video of the great descent (the squeals of delight you can head in the background belong to our five year old – definitely a highlight for him!)
Tiananmen Square has been in the news again lately, with headlines and video of a car crash at the iconic portrait of Chairman Mao.
What really struck in these reports was not the accident itself, but the fact that the Chinese police scrambled to erase evidence of the accident within a few short hours of its occurrence.
This reminds us of our experience in the same square this past summer as a marker of the power and paranoia that marks China’s politics, past and present.
Plus que ça change…
