First stop once we docked in Xingang...the Great Wall of China.
jesse. jack. becca on the great wall
My favorite part of the Great Wall was the thousands of locks running up the side of the wall on a chain. Apparently you take a lock to the great wall and 'lock your love forever'.
"Locks of love are the padlocks fixed by loving couples, on to a fence or a pole or metallic chain/string alongside some wall etc at a public place, to symbolize their eternal love. A couple would hang a padlock after inscribing their name or initials on it and throw the key away so that their love is locked forever. Some couple use two inter-twined locks, each lock bearing their name/initials. Besides lovers, often family members and close friends also put such locks at these places, to lock their relationship forever." click here for more about locks of love
