This was a long but rewarding day in Beijing for the 70 participants in the Alliance’s business mission to China.
The highlight was the Great Wall. Our guide explained no one can expect to be “heroes” before climbing the Wall. So, of course, to different extents, we all took the opportunitiy to conquer one of the world’s wonders.
They also visited the beautiful Temple of Heaven and a jade factory. We also passed several sites from the 2008 Summer Olympics, including the Cube, where Michael Phelps won his record-breaking gold medals.
