Winter Wall

Last month’s unusually warm fall weather has given way to this month’s unusually cold winter.  With the three snowfalls and frigid temperatures it feels more like January than November.  Some friends and I decided to take the tourist train to Badaling this afternoon to see the Great Wall in the snow.  Although we nearly froze our….well everything….off, this scene was worth the trip.

After spending about 15 minutes on the wall, we fled to the Starbucks to await our train back to the city. A good time was had by all.
