Nice travelogue; I also just got back from my second visit to China.
Here is a pic from The Great Wall at Mutianyu which is further away from Beijing.

There are more pictures from the trip, to keep the log short and sweet, many were not published in line. I will shortly make a photo log with the remaining pictures.

Loved the China, the gardens at T square, the colourful chandeliers and the frescoed facades of the buildings at Forbidden city, the Lion with its paw resting on a sphere and the Dragon holding a sphere in its paw. Were these made of Jade & Pewter respectively. Also liked the inlaid ceiling from the Temple of Heaven and the spreads on the tables with actual Chinese grub
