They say the Great Wall is one of the 7 wonders of the world. West Edmonton Mall is the 8th. But the guide didn't mention that.
Today the Great Wall, the zoo, a jade factory, the Olympic venue, and some place to get glasses.
I bought a jade pisu, a baby dragon (male version with left foot out-see photo). It eats money but doesn't poop so it keeps your money inside. Rub the pisu but don't rub the eyes. It will blind him and won't see the money coming.
Longest part of the Great Wall is 4,000 miles but we traveled a bit shorter. But our part was up up and up. We made it to the top and have an engraved medal to prove it! It was hard and awesome. Uncle Rick got to hold a Chinese baby as his prize for reaching the top.
We had a casualty on the wall but nothing serious. Mary-Lou hurt her foot. We didn't see it. We were too busy climbing! But anyone who knows ML knows it won't hold her back.
The evening ended with the deal of the century. The tour brought interested folks to a place to buy glasses and I found two pairs of Chrome Hearts. So obscure. Bought both. Paid about 20% of what I paid at home.
Tomorrow brings more chaos as we venture into the Silk Road Market. Knock off Rolex here we come!
