Still feeling pretty ordinary and very tired I chose to join a tour group to see the Great Wall rather than go through all the challenges of how to get there and back. I asked the tour desk at the hotel and the got me into a tour the next morning.
A mini bus picked me up from the hotel early in the morning and off we went, all three of us, a grand total of five including the driver! Cool, this could be ok! First stop was the Ming Tombs, the tour desk didnt tell me about this one but ok, i’ll go along, it looks intersting.
