The Great Wall!!!!









Hey everyone, so my recent adventures has been the great wall, its an amazing thing, you truly have no idea the scale of it untill you have stood on it and walked on it...its un imaginable! At the same truly beaufiful and inspiring.... also packed with tourists...lol. We also went to mings tomb and the imperial gardens and then participated in a ceremonial tea service, although some people didn't quite get the importance of what there doing, i was we'll aware of how special that moment was and tried my best soak it up as much as possible. We tried a 5 different teas and were tought how to drink it and what there properties were .... it was once in a life time thing thats for sure.

As for work, we are now doing 12 hours days as things are starting to ramp up here more and more, i have seen the venues and they are truly beaufiful pieces of artwork and I wish you could all be here to see the scale of them, they are amazing truly amazing. Its a testament to what these people can do and how fast they can do it.

Im starting to slowly fall in love with this place, why cause they have such a passion for who they are there way of life and they celebrate it...from the tea ceremony to the food, to the local culture , they just are willing sacrifice those things...its something we don't get in canada or understand.

Oh and everything in negotiable here, never pay full price...its a fun challenge to see how cheap you can get things...they jack the prices up cause your northern american and they expect you to talk them down!!!!

Anyways im gonna go i miss you all will put more posts soon!

Oh and the night life here is friggin awesome...."china doll was fun" killer club...
