Short Journey, Big Harvest

Last Saturday, I explored Badaling Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. Booking this tour is the suggestion of my father who holds deep interests in Chinese history and culture. He always told us that China is a mysterious country housing marvelous attractions and cultures. So mysterious interests aroused in my mind.

I clearly remembered that the weather on the day showed very sunny with slight breeze. Fist destination is Ming Tombs. It is a large scale tomb group with 13 ancient emperors buried. Perhaps, because of the background history and culture, I always smelled the ancient tastes and solemn atmosphere. Tourists here are less. No matter wherever we went, tour guide always offered us the considerate information about the decorations, buildings, even the ground materials. We were ordered to appreciate Changling Tomb. It is the most magnificent and largest tomb building in this area. I got deep about its history and culture as well as the story about the emperor buried.

Badaling Great Wall

Compared with Ming Tombs, Badaling Great Wall showed more lively and vigorous. Once got off the bus, we were immediately impressed by the magnificent building. It is just like the book said a long-distance dragon, zigzagging, falling and down, stretching to the far distance without any man-made decoration. The watchtowers far distance is just like the dragon's scales. We climbed on the building. What appeared to my eyes are the crowded tourists. Some of them are holding the umbrellas. When we are climbing, the umbrellas become the big obstacle. I wanted to say, this kind of behaviors should be forbidden, because the umbrellas could easily hurt someone. We continued our climbing journey and saw best preserved watchtowers with windows. So many tourists circled appreciating and commenting. Some tourists are carving their names or sentences on the building. It is really bad behaviors. As the world wonder preserved so many years, we should protect them but destroy. After several minutes, we met the steep steps, very high forming the right-angle shape. To be honest, this time, my feet have got very tired, trembling all the time. In order to have a safe condition, we helped each other. I counted the steps, totally 32. After conquering that, I stood on the top shouted out: I have been successful!

This tour taught me much. I thought just appreciating on the book is not really enough. Only getting closer, you could get all!
