This is one of the wonders of the World.
And finally I reached the destination.

And, thats the scene I saw inside. The great wall.
As the Olympics closing ceremony was on the next day, many players visited this place on that day.

I felt great by sighting this master piece.
The wall is surrounded by a deep forest. And they took a good care of the forest in spite of the huge number of tourists everyday. I didnt find any plastic bottles or other waste around there. :)
I have played cricket at zonal level and I represented my district Nellore at many occasions/tounaments. During this stage, I had very little time for my studies and I dropped from '80/100 student' to average '60/100' student.
I faced challenges, stress. At one stage, my academic career was in danger. I was from a middle class family and I had no option but to study and get a job. But I neglected studies and tried reaching greater hights by playing cricket and risked my life. By the time I realize this, it was almost late.
But, I recovered.
Did my MCA. Cracked few off-campus interviews facing some huge competition and got a job.
Yes, it is not easy in India for a middle class student to take up a sport as profession. If you fail, you are gone. you have no backup.
I did not achieve anything in cricket apart from few paper cuttings. I saved them in this link. https://sites.google.com/site/hazarathreddy/papercuttings
But, my personlaity and attitude changed because of cricket. I will share all of those in a different post.
It was a great trip overall. Had fantastic time on the Great wall. I complete this post with my another memorable experience.
I came out from the wall and I went for shopping.
I have purchased a painted cup there and I forgot my camera there and left the place. :)
I reached the Bus-stand nearby and I was about to leave.
A small boy was running towards the bus searching for me. He came to me and gave my camera back.
The below is the photo that I took with the shop's owner when I puchased that mug . He was the person sent the small boy with my camera. :)
