Biking to the Great Wall

On our last full day in China, Will and I took a 50-mile bike ride — and again saw the Great Wall. It was a spectacularly beautiful day — clear, sunny, about 80 degrees. Will was a good sport about it, indulging my biking habit, and we really had fun. We saw a lot of the countryside — farms and small villages.

Our trip to China has been wonderful. It has taught us a lot about this huge country, which is so old, and so new, at the same time. UNC is already doing a lot in China, in global health and other areas. The potential is for much, much more.

And the Beijing Olympics were just fabulous!
