Regrettably, I have been trying for a few weeks to snap a photo of someone in action climbing down the wall, but it's much harder than it looks. The traffic isn't too heavy on this road so it's not often we're slowly inching along to the light at the corner. I have to act fast and most times, we're moving too fast to tell what I've taken a photo of.
In any event, more about the Great Wall of Qingdao here:
It is a fake wall which you can see in some parts of the wall that have fallen apart, though it's not obvious in these photos. You can, however, see what looks like water streaming down this rocky cliff-esque wall. It's just paint. Paint they need to touch up. But down those "streams" is where you will find people - men and women in dress shoes no less - risking life and limb to get down the wall to the bus stop. It boggles my mind!
And now, I will remain vigilant in my attempts to photograph some crazy soul as they descend this man-made catastrophe in the making. I'll update this post if I can catch it! Stay tuned!
