Wow.... Maybe the Wall would look better if they put Aluminum Siding on It....

.........
I agree.
They could lease portions of the wall to corporate sponsors too.

Whatever works

It would be a shame to let it disintegrate.
There are some pretty spry old folks over there. When I went to the Great Wall
I was huffing and puffing just dragging myself up to the beginning of the Great Wall from
the bus parking lot. I was passed up by many really old people who grinned at me as
they quickly passed by. yeah yeah yeah.... rub it in.
I jumped on one of the old, smoking trollies and paid the driver a few yuan.

Yes ............

That section of the wall has the highest elevations and is something of a challenge  ..........

Especially when encountering 2 foot high uneven steps on a 70 degree incline  ........

It can be quite unnerving if you feel a little unbalanced  ..........  

And the iron hand rails are a later consideration .........      



Imagine the guys who had to get all the equipment (guns) up to the towers at the top ........

Must have been like a breed of cross-bred mountain goats  ..........
