The Great Wall of China

Postby Dixie » Fri Sep 24, 2004 8:13 pm

I saw someone was talking about the Great Wall on the General Discussion forum, and I was wondering if any Chinese members (above all Redrose) or anyone who has visited it could tell us about it. Have you ever seen it? What's it like? I've just seen it on movies. I've just walked on a fake one in a theme park near my town. I really think the Great Wall is a work of art! How long is it? :roll:

The Great Wall of China is very grand and splendid! I have been to the Great Wall for 3 times in the past. The previous two times visits happened during my college time. Then my college was about two-hour-car distance from the first gate of The Great Wall <ShanHai Gate>. Once my ex-bf told me:"we should go to The Great Wall for a trip!" I agreed. that was a nice trip! We stood on the Great Wall and shouted out! how relaxing! just two months after we returned back to our school, we went to the Great Wall again~! Coz she was so great! I even don't know how to describe her beauty and charm! No wonder why people around world love her!

last year I went to BeiJing( China's capital) for a medicine conference, and I visited The Great Wall again~! I still don't know how to describe her charm and attraction!

What do you think of the fake one,Dixie.?
:D The great wall could be seen in outer space.One report from USA proves it.They use a kind of camera,getting the photo.
Last year,an Chinese astraunomor went to the space.after he returned,he said he hadn't seen the great wall.
This message was out of surprise,made us all depressed.Since the relevant knowledge is writtern into the book of primary school.
But the possible truth is one can't see it by naked eyes.
So the American scientists keep the legend going on.Because they just found it when they were doing spy work in China. 8) 8) :lol:
The fact is the great wall is very long.not always consecutive now.But really an unbelievable work.it traverses several provinces.And with several kinds of styles.

I heard of the message of that people could see The Great Wall from the outer space, and it isn't until now that I didn't know the message was fake! I just visited two Gates of the Great Wall for 3 times: ShanHuai Gate and BaDa Lin; two times for ShanHuai Gate and one time for BaDa Lin.

as GreatJim said, The Great Wall isn't consecutive, she gose through several provinces of China. In this respect, she isn't perfect. However, I think that is just a kind of bizarre beauty! her disconnections show her complicated experiences.

I just went to there one time ,to BaDa Lin.That's really a good memory.I think it's a creative engineering,as in an architect's eyes.
YOu will enjoy the trip when you are walking on the steps between the wall And don't feel tired.
