I know it has been a while! Last week I had to go to Beijing with a fellow teacher to complete a training course. The course is a requirement to teach in China if you do not have two years of teaching experience. The course lasted 7 days and we were in class from 9 – 5. The long class days did not leave much time to sightsee. We were actually only able to visit two of Beijing’s major attractions. Thankfully, we did get one afternoon off to visit. We decided that The Great Wall was the most important place to visit if we could only choose one. The Great Wall was quite amazing! It goes on forever. It definitely deserves the title of one of the 7 wonders of the world!
