Jeremy at the unreconstructed Great Wall42 viewsThe tourist-friendly parts of the Great Wall have all been rebuilt and repaved, supplied with garbage cans and so on. But there are many more parts of the Wall that look like this, with plants growing through the remains of the paving stones.mudmine

Don and Jane act out at the theater at Delphi36 viewsDelphi wasn't all about the Oracle, as it turns out. There was lots of other stuff for locals and visitors to do. In addition to the theater, there was also a stadium a little higher up the hill. It's said that for three months of the year, Apollo left Delphi and the god of wine and revelry, Dionysus (Bacchus to the Romans), took over. mudmine
Polluting peppers71 viewsWe brought home some hot peppers once and the process of cutting them up and frying them produced invisible clouds of pepper-gas that made us cough and our eyes water. Truly a meal to remember, though not really in a good way.mudmine

Tian family shrine30 viewsThe shrine was open for tourists, but is apparently owned by a real estate company and not really set up to be terribly user-friendly or informative. The sleeping dogs in the courtyard give some idea of the mood of the place. mudmine
Mycenean ruins50 viewsAt the foot of the mountain in back you can see the ruins of Mykines, explored by the amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann in the nineteenth century. Before then, though locals and visitors knew there was something ancient there, and some digs were conducted as early as the 1850s. After Schliemann's excavations, people began to associate these ruins with the stories of Menelaus, Agamemnon, Clytemnestra and the gang-- the non-Trojan side of the Trojan War, which folks had previously thought was legend and not history.mudmine

Pingyao city gate50 viewsPingyao has very wisely decided to prohibit most motor vehicles from coming inside the city walls during the day, which makes it a far more peaceful place than most other Chinese cities. It also helps Pingyao preserve the pre-car feel of the old streets. Here is a view of one of the city gates from inside.mudmine
