It took a good night of rest for us to recover from the exhausting Great Wall and Camping experience. We visited the Summer Mountain Resort in the town of Chengde. There we walked the outer wall to the temple. It was high above the town and was very scenic. The route was up and down in steep sections; but was really great to get out and enjoy the 90 degree weather. We cooled off in the shade and had a picnic there in the central park area. We explored China’s Imperial Garden’s of China’s royal families and it was magnificent! Lastly the day ended with a visit to the paper-cutting store. The artist created and showcased a few examples and then it was our turn to give it a try. What a trained art paper cutting is. Afterwards we had a little shop-er-tunity! We then went home for a little rest and dinner!

Sounds like a well-needed respite from a hectic schedule. What did you buy in your shop-er-tunity?
