The Great Wall of China by Yong Li

My favorite place is the Great Wall of China.

My older son, his wife, and I visited the Great Wall after Chinese New Year 2009. We saw the part of the Great Wall north of Beijing, however the wall is several thousand miles long from the east to the west.

The Great Wall looks very, very grand and imposing, and yet is very beautiful. The Great Wall was built more than two thousand years ago, and represents the wisdom, stamina, and endurance of the Chinese people.

The Wall has defended the Chinese against the subversion and agression of external enemies. Now tourists, foreign and domestic, come to visit this world-famous historic relic--the Great Wall of China!
