Happy New Year!

 Heya Happy New Year!  Another long absence from blog-landia, whoops!  But there's several good reasons this time!  How about a kind of spur of the moment trip to China for the holidays?  Here's some pictures of our snowy freezing day on the Great Wall (Mutianyu).  The weirdest, steepest, twisty-est stairs I've ever been on, which were also icy and snow-covered.  Fun!
You can see all the funny angles of the brick work, nothing level, I found it disorienting when I was walking, but beautiful and interesting when I was standing still.  Zach, Marc and Alex.
 A picture of Marc and I. Wearing many many layers.  On one of the graffitied corners.
 We didn't get too many super long views because of the clouds, but the wall just goes on and on and then even further.
Another Zach and Alex picture with lots of the wall in the background.  It really is an impressive thing and I'm glad we got the chance to see it ourselves.
