Descending the Great Wall of China to our mountain lodgings under the last rays of afternoon sun. Trekking the Great Wall was the culmination of a team charity challenge for Interplast, an Australian organization that sends doctors to regions of Asia to provide free reconstructive surgery for those in need.
