What lies ahead of me, my journey through the middle kingdom, the 3rd biggest country, a civilisation shroud in mystic and secrecy? For hundreds of years being surrounded by the hoards of barbarians all trying to get into their land. A civilisation going back for thousands of years and a culture that has managed to survive against all odds. The mistakes of the past 60 years of communism have really shown, but china has bounced back and its economic boom has begun. With this has come to opportunity to westerners to explore and travel China, and made our journey along the great wall possible.
