Climbing the Great Wall

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This is a scan of a slide made in 1990 at the Great Wall. In 1987, on my first visit there, I climbed the wall from the gate at Badaling, hear the buildings in the foreground, to the watch tower on the ridge at the right of the picture. Our host told me that climb made me a Hero of the People's Republic.
