Beijing and the Great Wall of China
Get set for Jet Lag Jerry! Join me as I take you on a whirlwind tour of the seven modern wonders of our wonderful world and beyond. Don’t worry, I’ll do all the hard work (the standing in line for visas and security, the shriek-inducing vaccinations, the twelve hour flights, the shoving of three days’ clothing for two types of weather into the confines of a carry on, the conversion of yuan or reals into dollars and back, the dysentery). You just need to sit back in the comfort of your sofa or bed or subway seat, wherever you happen to be reading this (though in the case of the subway seat, maybe ‘comfort’ isn’t the right word), and travel with me.
