Okay, last picture of the Great Wall of China… for this year at least. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Last week I mentioned that its common for people to think that the Great Wall has a beginning and an end, when in fact, it has many beginnings and endings. ¬†Last week’s Picture of the Week was an example of¬†an end, as is this week’s. ¬†This week’s, however, I thought was kind of unique because it is where the Wall actually runs into the Yellow Sea. ¬†Behind where I was standing when I took this picture is a walled city, and for some reason, they chose to extend a piece of that wall out to the water. ¬†It clearly doesn’t serve as much of an deterrent to invading armies, except maybe as a good vantage point to the beach. ¬†In any case, I thought it was neat!

Next week, on to the cities!
