bringing up parents

brought our parents to the Great Wall. the weather was excellent, sunny, clear blue skies and a cool breeze. going up the wall on a week day was a refreshing change, minus the hordes of weekend tourists. altho the Mutianyu stretch of the Great Wall is much less crowded than the Badaling stretch.

lunch was at our favourite rainbow trout joint, amongst the numerous farm-style restaurants between Huairou and Mutianyu. Our parents enjoyed the sashimi trout and other peasant-style dishes.

the view and scenery at the restaurant was quite pleasant. It reminds us of Australia (if you ignore the rubbish in the foreground).
