Great Wall, Revisited
I made it to the entrance of the Great Wall and could go no further, but others in our delegation did. So I'm borrowing some photos in hopes that you'll get the full flavor of the place.
All the photos above were shot by Fred Alcantar, chairman of the Pasadena Sister Cities Committee. His knees were just fine.
Here's Fred (second from left at one of our many state-occasion dinners) with Jack Wills (far left), USC emeritus professor of history and member of the PSCC's China Subcommittee; a gentleman from Penrith, New South Wales, Australia, another of Xicheng District's sister cities; and Jeannine Bogaard.
