Great Wall Christmas 2014 - Gubeikou Great Wall to Jinshanling Great Wall
Photos from a hike along the Great Wall from Gubeikou to Jinshanling.
We do Christmas hikes every year, and because Christmas 2014 was on a Thursday (when a lot of people in China have to work) we added another Christmas-time hike on the 27th, for those who couldn't make it on the 25th.
As always, it was great fun! The hike took us along scenic stretches of Great Wall, and the air temperature was unusually mild for a December in Beijing.
After finishing the hike we headed on to a nearby restaurant for a big meal , and a the dumpling-making competition!
This year we had three categories of prizes: Most Traditional Dumpling; Most Artistic Dumpling; and Most Dumplings in total
After a dumpling-making demonstration, we start the stopwatch and the competition is on!
