Day 1- Beijing, by Allison Roth ’14

Today we went to the Great Wall and walked around the hutong district of Beijing. It was raining for the most of the day, but it did not prevent us from doing everything we had planned. We took a bus from the hotel to the bottom of the Great Wall. We then took a cable car up to the Great Wall and walked on it for a bit and took a cable car back down. After the Great Wall, we stopped and had lunch at a restaurant on the way back to the hotel.  We were able to see the fish we were about to eat get caught in the pond right outside. After a break at the hotel, we walked around hutong and were able to see typical old Beijing streets. For dinner, we went to a restaurant and met up with a PA alum and had Peking duck, which is a famous Chinese dish.

Attached are pictures of the Great Wall and the lake in the center of Beijing.
