I’m back in Suzhou after my third, and favorite, visit to Beijing. More about that later. For now, here’s proof that we climbed a section of the Great Wall on a blustery yet clear and pollution-free summer’s day. I promise to make my next post writing related (since I owe you a review of The Taming of the Duke from a male perspective), but here’s a romantic detail for you. My partner and I have taken photos of our hands every May since our first year together. This is the eighth photo and the second one in China.
