Then we went to the Nanjing city wall. It's big. Like, the longest city wall in China. It took over 200,000 families 21 years to build it. They had to make all the bricks, and the bricks were marked so that the government would know who made what brick. And if your family made a bad brick? They killed the entire family. Immediately. Double sheesh.
Right near the wall there is this little archery range. I don't know why. I guess because there were archers on the wall? I think just because foreigners will pay to shoot a bow and arrow. Anyways, it worked on our group. We had our own little group of Merry Men. Ok, no, not really. But one guy did shoot a bulls-eye and got two extra arrows. But mostly it was just fun to watch people try, and generally fail miserably :).
My own Robin Hood. Mmm, look at that form. Anyways...
