My agonisingly slow 6 week wait is hopefully coming to an end. I want to return to walking the Great Wall. The mending process was so slow the first four weeks, that I thought it might be something more serious than ‘just’ a fracture. Luckily, the foot has recovered a lot faster over the last two weeks.
The winter comes quickly here, and the area I will be walking during the last part of this walk is between North-Korea and Siberia. So the sooner I get going, the better.
I plan to return to the Great Wall this week, and test it with some real walking in proper Great Wall terrain.
The pictures under show slices of my foot from an MRI taken a month ago. As you can see – the foot is a fairly complex piece of machinery and in many ways I am very grateful that they have both done as well as they have. It’s a nice coincidence that today’s quote is:
The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.
