I’m sitting in a very nice waiting room in Qinhuangdao waiting for the bus to take me back to the Great Wall.
As you might have noticed, there has not been that much activity on this site lately and the map has not been updated while I have been out walking. This is because the main keyboard on my mobile phone has gone 250 as they say in China – meaning it is faulty. There has also been a technical problem on the web site. That problem is resolved, so from now on you should be able to follow my progress on the Great Wall Route page day by day.
The last day in Zunhua, I went to a China Mobile shop looking at mobiles with a full keyboard. They cost quite a lot of money. I got talking to one of the salespersons there and told her a bit about the walk. The day after I returned, having decided to get the phone. I was very surprised and grateful when the woman showed me a phone much superior
to the one I was planning to buy, and gave it to me!! Her husband had used the phone a short while but didn’t need it any longer. I was so surprised and offered to pay for it, but she would hear nothing of it.
So – a very big thankyou to Lily in one of the many China Mobile shops in Zunhua! You are a very generous person 🙂
