Jinshanling Section of the Wall

Not sure if we lucked out with the weather this week or not? We have had manageable temperatures (for that I am grateful) but no sunshine, either.  The view changes from completely socked in a grey fog to some green hills peaking through the mist.

It was incredible travelling up through the high Andean mountains, over 14 000ft in some places, passing llamas and tiny mountain villages. The amazing scenery almost made up for violent B movies in spanish and the fact that I was vomiting in […]
