Yesterday was an overcast and at times misty/drizzling day. Wasn't bad for what we were doing. Today, it would have been a real shame to have that weather. Well as usual for us, it was a beautiful sunny day. We have been so blessed for over 25 years of almost perfect weather when we travel and plan something. It happened again! Since I keep saying it, it continues to happen so I am just doing what I have said years. We bring good weather when traveling.

I was a clear day to walk the Great Wall. The section we walked is a times very steep. It was almost like climbing a ladder! We did climbed the the second fortress. That was enough for us. Great pictures and memories. Guess that's another check mark on life's to do list for us.

In the afternoon we toured the Olympic Park from the 2008 Olympics. Didn't have time to go inside any venues.

Last highlight was a rickshaw ride. That was a cool thing to do.
