I slept very well last night. Lots of fresh air. Started walking at about eight o’clock in the morning. It felt strange to get down to flat terrain again.
After walking 13 kilometres, the clouds got darker and darker, and it started raining. I decided enough was enough for this stretch, and hitched a bus back to Zhangjiakou. The camera batteries are empty and I need to make more pictures for the website. I will move base camp to a town just North East of Beijing called Huai Rou, and then return to the Great Wall again.
13 kilometres today
