My daughter and I just returned from a trip to China. It was always her wish to walk on the Great Wall. I promised to go with her, but I did not mean to wait until I was 84.There were times I could not walk so far, so a Chinese man pushed me in a wheelchair. We floated down the Yangtze River for 150 miles with stops along the way, on a cruise ship. The Yangtze is the 3rd longest river in the world. Gail and the other members of our group plus other busloads of people walked up the wall as far as they would let them go, while I stayed below in a wheelchair. After I saw the wall, I stayed in the bus, until the others returned. We went to Tienanmen Square with 80,000 other people. We saw the Terracotta Warriors which number more than 8,000 and they are still digging in the area. We were on 5 different airplanes, 1 cruise ship and numerous tour buses. We had a great trip.
