I've seen the above with my own eyes. We were in Ubud, Bali and I had forgotten my SLR camera that day, only the waterproof Olympus. No picture could do this scene justice and I have never seen anything so beautiful in nature, created by man. The cascading green rice paddies laid calmly before us, and all I wanted to do was descend upon its steps over and over again.
We stopped here, too. I never realized how high in altitude the Great Wall was until we had to climb it. To say that the steps were steep would be an understatement. I fought to catch my breath in the thin air.
