Hiking the Great Wall 长城 of China in the snow

A great film of the Great Wall north of Beijing, including 'wild wall', accompanied by great music (踏古 (Ta Gu) by Lin Hai, 'Walking into Ancientry', with Chinese lute (pipa)).

We [mum, dad - videographer - and son and daughter, from Singapore] hiked 3 sections of the Great Wall in winter, without any guides after studying blogs and posts by fellow hikers.

All these sections are different. From the unrestored GuBeiKou Great Wall where we were the only people around, to the wonderful JinShanLing, where the climb is steep and every direction gives you good photo opportunities, to the restored MuTianYu where we hiked in heavy snowfall.

We stayed at local farmhouses on both nights, dined with the locals and hitched rides to nearby bath-houses. Temperature ranged from -5 deg C (day) to -12 deg C (night). Winter daybreak is at 7am and the sky becomes dark by 5pm so one has only 10 hours of daylight, so plan your travelling and hiking schedules carefully.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience was captured on video and we would like to share it with you. The feelings just can't be described - you need to experience it first hand.

Take only memories, leave only footprints and kindness ...

Two left feet ? No matter; whatever your passion, remember that time flies - follow your dream; how often does the butterfly land in the palm of your hand ...?

Keep warm this winter, but also be cool - and get off that sofa, or internet, now and then ... Live more ! (especially if you have noted that there are actually 13 videos ;)

Happiness is not what you get, but what you give. Become a fountain of joy and share the love ...

Dance - The Thousand Hand Guan Yin - video

This beautiful dance was created by Chinese choreographer Zhang JiGang and is performed by 63 deaf dancers from the China Disabled People's Performing Arts Troupe. Because the dancers can not hear the music, there are 6 directors in white helping them to synchronize with the music through visual cues. The dance describes the legend of Bodhisattva Guan-Yin and her thousand hands of compassion. A Bodhisattva is a proto-Buddha; but Guan-Yin made a vow:  while there is still a single teardrop in this world, I will not become a Buddha ...

The Tang Dynasty Show in Xi'An 西安

The Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show has become a classic that has been running since 1982 and has also toured many countries. Xi'An, formerly known as Chang'An, was the imperial capital during 13 dynasties. Of these, the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) was perhaps the most glorious of all. The Tang was open to outside influences, taking in the best of various art forms of not only past dynasties but also the ethnic groups in China as well as central and western Asia, including a wide range of unusual musical instruments and a variety of techniques in painting, sculpting, patterns, costume design, poetry, singing and dancing. The performances have their roots in folk arts, developing over thousands of years. The show presented today is a recreation of traditional entertainment based on much historical research. Staged with a visualization of the Tang imperial court as its setting, the production manifests a unique classical style with features typical of Xi'An.
