The great wall section we saw was all restored recently, but even so it was impressive. We went to a section about 130Km outside of Beijing that is seldom visited by foreign tourists. Then to the imperial tombs nearby, which are also supposed to be better than the ones nearer Beijing.

After several hours of traffic jams we also had the famous Beijing Duck, which was indeed excellent. Today we had a visit to the Summer Palace in the morning, and then took a train to Datong, arriving very late in the evening.
