Simatai - The Great Wall (Pt. 3)

The last bit of pictures from Simatai --

Here is a look into the hostel we stayed at and the little area surrounding it:

This is the reverse angle of the first picture of the hostel above -- this is where the animals below were.

After you walk in between the fields, you come across this little path, which is actually a hidden back way into the Great Wall, so you don't have to pay if you go into the exit :)

Here is the family that ran the hostel, the two kids would bring us soap, water, cups, etc. And the mom would cook us amazing food. It wasn't as cheap as I would have hoped, but the authentic food was to die for.

This girl lives in the house with the few farms animals -- just pigs and chickens really. Well, and her dog.

These ones are related, the two men lived in the hostel sweeping and working out in the fields.

My favorite thing about China, the toilets (this is an extremely clean one comparatively) -

Not a great finale to the series of Simatai pictures, but the people we met were some of the most memorable parts of it.

Coming soon (within the next few hours or days -- depending on how long going through 600 pictures will take), Qingdao, home of Tsingtao beer in a 2.5 liter bag.
