    Nope. Korean is my forte, although I can read a bit of Chinese (or can look it up) if it isn't so stylized. I'm pretty sure it says something about how cool I am though. ;) :D

    It probably says : please do not stand in front of this sign - access required at all times!! ;)


    Either that or "Photography strictly prohibited - 2,000,000 yuan fine!!"

    Is that the Great Wall at Ba Da Ling or Mu Tian Yu? I've been to both but I think the one you're at in the pic is Ba Da Ling.

    I lived in Changchun, China for a year in 2001-02 teaching English to Chinese students at a private college. I was also in China in 1996 for a summer. Between those two times I spent a lot of time in Beijing. I know you're having/had a blast. It's a fun place. If you're still there try and go to the Beijing Military Museum if you're into that sort of thing. That's a place most tourists don't visit but is really fascinating. There's a stop for it on the straight line subway. Easy to find. Ahhh...memories. The Temple of Heaven is pretty cool too if you haven't been there. You've obviously been to Tiananmen, which is a must-see. If you can get up to see the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an that is at least as impressive as the Great Wall in my mind. You should be able to get an overnight train ticket for 25 dollars or less. Anyway...I know you don't need my advice but I couldn't resist. Have fun!
