Day 5 – ALLSTARS hit the sights of Beijing as Soccer gets the day off.

Saturday, July 26

 

The boys swapped their cleats for walking shoes today. Visiting the only manmade structure visible from space in the Great Wall, local sights the Jade stone works and a Dr Tea’s Tea house, venues from the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, finishing the day off at the Summer Palace. Enjoy the photos:

Players and parents enjoyed an early bird visit to the Great Wall just outside Beijing. One of the wonders of the world that I am sure is on many peoples bucket lists. Apparently it forms the outline of a dragon, I haven’t looked to confirm though…..
