We took the cable car up to the wall, walked for quite a while along the wall, then took toboggans down the mountain. It took a few hours and we were all exhausted by the end. All except the two-year-old, who had her own personal Sherpa to carry her the whole way.

We stayed at The Schoolhouse in Mutianyu, which is a tiny town about an hour and a half outside of Beijing. It was a pretty cool place. The first day we just hung out, napped (after the late night and early morning on the train), watched the Rugby (Mike brought his projector and laptop, and streamed the game live in Slovakian to their make-shift AV room), ate, played games, and walked around the town.
