Shouts of Victory from the Great Wall

Victory02

As I stood there to observe, I felt myself dwarfed in size.. The magnificent wall covered vast stretches of land. It was amazing, yet unbelievable. 🙂

Built by the first Emperor of China, the Great Wall of China protected against raids.

The series of fortifications made it difficult for enemies to penetrate.

It was hard to imagine the fight between the chinese guards and barbarians on this massive wall.. The historical period drama I watched didn’t help in that, but it made it easier to imagine shouts of victories by the chinese guards.
