Matthew stayed at the bottom of the Great Wall with Ivy, our guide, while we climbed to the top. We were gone for an hour and a half. Matthew and Ivy waited in the warm ticket office. Matthew was being greatly attended to by Ivy and the ticket assistants and waved to us happily through the window when we returned. Here you can see he has 2 little oranges in his right hand, he'd already eaten 3, that were given to him while we were away. We took Matthew to the beginning stages of the climb just to get some precious photos of him on the Great Wall.
