Beijing and The Great Wall of China

My recent China trip didn’t get off to the best of starts; I was stopped at Beijing airport where they have a temperature checkpoint, and forced to provide my details and a saliva sample because my body temperature was abnormally high. I had left London feeling rough, and the 16 hour journey to China only made my symptoms worse. As a result I only managed to got a few pictures taken during those first couple of days, when I would usually want to hit the ground running. We did 2 nights in Beijing, then 2 nights at Mutianyu by the Great Wall of China.
