The Great Wall of China.

"Whoever never been to the great wall, is not a hero". A translation of the slogan craving on the big rock.

Two thousands years ago, when there wasn’t technology like today, how could this great wall be built? With a great mind of an emperor, millions of loyal workers, a great wall was construct. The mystery of the construction of the wall is amazing.

In fact, it began as independent walls for different states when it was first built, and did not become the “Great” wall until the Qin Dynasty. Emperor Qin Shihuang succeeded in his effort to have the walls joined together to fend off the invasions from the Huns in the north after the unification of China.

The wall were built to defend the country from being attacked by enemies, this is the world’s most longest wall. The construction was simple incredible, it’s built by man’s hand, without help from any machine, the will of the Chinese men, is definitely a lesson to learn to everyone. Moreover, the Great Wall of China is now one of the amazing 7 wonders in the world.

The steps is still stand strong even until today. The wall sit still to show the world, when there is will, there is the way. It’s awesome to be there. I am the hero now, cause, I’ve been there, once.
