The Great Wall of China

Two views from the Great Wall of China, built east to west along the northern borders of China in 206 BC.  In spite of persistent claims, it isn't visible from outer space.  However it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The top postcard shows the wall at Jinshanling, one of the best preserved sections.  The bottom postcard shows the Wangjinglou Tower, built at the highest part of the Wall.

  1. Visiting the Great Wall was a highlight!

  2. There was a New Yorker article a few years ago about the challenges of walking the length of the great wall. I guess a great deal of it is in disrepair, and only a few sections maintained well enough to actually walk on it safely.

  3. Fantastic Postcard.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
