|The Great Wall of China
I went to China with a friend.
We went and walked along the Great Wall of China. There were many
stairs and the walking was very difficult. After about two hours we
walked to a big station in the Great Wall. The walk and the station
were very interesting. As we were walking to the station, we each
had our own backpack. After walking only the first hour, which was only
half the way to the big station, my friend got very tired and I had to

Great Wall was always going up and down. It was an experience to see
how complex and the great difficulty that it was to make. The rocks
used to make the Great Wall were brought from a long way away.

looked at our packs and our cameras. We very soon left the station.
We next went to a Buddest temple. He we saw a huge Buda made of
gold. When our guide spoke to the Buda, you could see that he really
felt that the Buda was actually his god. The other people in
the temple spoke slowly and humbly to the Buda.
After leaving the Buda, we next went shopping. When we bought
clothes it was required to bargain for these clothes. No one spoke
English. The Chinese people would say "Siamak" and then say "Lookie
Look." That's the only two phrases that they would say. You
must be careful when shopping, however. For example, when we
would buy a book, we would later discover that somehow the Chinese would
have exchanged the book and you would end up with something that did not
