image A look back: Most tourists to China find the Great Wall

When we went to China in 2007, of course we had to see the Great Wall as does just about every tourist to China. Later, back home in the U.S., a news crew was using the Great Wall as a backdrop to a report and I mentioned to our two children (who had been on the trip), “Hey look. It’s the Great Wall!” One of them turned for a second and said, “Yeah, we’ve been there.” We were on the trip for our son’s marching band (Barron Collier High School in Naples, Fla.) and I was a chaperone and the rest of the family came as companions since we knew it would be the trip of a lifetime.
