The last few days in Beijing (and China for that matter) where spent walking around the city. I went to the Birds Nest, a really amazing gallery area called the 798, hung out with all of my pals, and ate at wonderful restaurants.
Well this is the last post for my China blog. There is no way for me to say how wonderful this experience has been, and no way for me to talk about how much I have gained, maybe a whole bunch will do the trick..
Thanks for keeping up with the blog and all of the comments.

The Great Wall of China is unbelievable. I walked a few miles in an upwards direction with a few friends. We would see a peak in the distance that looked to be higher than all of the rest and so our goal was to get to it. Once there we would see that the next peak was actually higher. This continued until we could no longer walk.
After seeing the wall and the mountains that surround it I have no idea why anyone would want to try to invade another country. I would have stayed home with a nice warm fire.
We arrived in Beijing today after an overnight train ride. The trip was hilarious as most of us have way to many bags filled with lots of Chinese goodies.
We visited the Forbidden City and Tienanmen square. The Forbidden City was amazingly huge and had an amazing garden filled with different items from around the world.
