First Lady Michelle Obama, Her Daughters, and the Great Wall

Yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama visited the Great Wall of China with her daughters. As she wrote in her Travel Journal:

We drove about an hour north of Beijing to a village called Mutianyu to visit a section of the Great Wall of China, which was simply breathtaking. The scenery on the way there was beautiful -- a wide vista of mountains and trees -- so the car ride alone was a treat. But then, running along the highest ridges of the mountains, you see it: The Great Wall -- one of the great marvels of human history.
