Adventure Day with Robin

We went to The Wall today... Robin came with us, so before I go any further, you should know that this trip was not any ordinary Great Wall experience. It was special. And insane. Because Robin was with us.

We started by peeing here.
Kori and I side by side.

Robin didn't want to pay the 30 yuan ($4.40) to enter the Wall, so he "said" that they told him we could just climb the side of the mountain for free and get to the wall that way... And of course, we followed Robin...

Through a gate...

Under a barbed-wire fence...

And up the mountain...

"I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here"

And when we finally reached the wall path. There was celebrating.
And happy faces!

We worked up our appetite climbing that mountain.

So we stopped for our PB&J sandwiches.

Robin added bagged seaweed to his....

After lunch, we were off to go back down the wall and take pictures...

Robin told us we must stretch before.

We love that guy!

AND... we had visitor on the wall...
BAILEY!!!!

So as we were coming back down, we wondered how we were going to get out without getting in trouble... Robin said just to walk through. Well that worked for us...
But not Robin.

To make a long story short... after, a LOT of Chinese yelling, and a LOT of confusion from the American girls, we finally got Robin back. If you want to know more in details or see photos from the almost Chinese beating/Chinese arrest of Robin, contact Kori, Cathy, or Megan. Or me. But just not for pictures.

That is a story we will tell our kids someday. "One day, I snuck into The Great Wall of China through the side of the mountain, and it almost got my Chinese best friend arrested"

I am glad my friends can experience Adventures with Robin.
