The Great Wall of China is called the “Ten-thousand-Ii Great Wall” in Chinese.。In fact, it's more than 6000 kilometres long. It winds its way from west to east, acrodeserts, over mountains, throug。h valleys till at last it reaches the sea. It is one of the wonders of the world.
The G。reat Wall has a history of over twenty centu。ries.The first part of i。t was buil。t duri。ng the Spring and Autumn Period. During the Warring States Period, more walls were put up to defend the bo。rders of the di。fferent kingdoms。. It was during the Qin Dy。nasty that the kingdom of Qin united the different parts into one empire. To keep the enemy out of his empire, Emperor Qin Shi Huang had all the walls joined up.Thus, the Gre。a。t Wall came into being.
The Great Wall is wide enough at the top for five hors。es or ten men to walk side。 by side. Along the wall are watchtow-ers, where soldiers us。ed to keep watch. Fires were lit on the the towers as a warning when the enemy came.
It was very difficult to build such a wall in the ancient days without any modern machines. All the work。 was done by hand. Thousands of men died and were buried under the wall they built. The Great Wall was made not only of stone and earth, but。 of the flesh an。d blood of milli。ons of men.
T。oday the Great Wall has become a。 place of interest not only to the Chinese but to people from all over the world.Many of them have come to know the famous Chinese say。ing: “He who does not reach the Great Wall is not a true man.”
Three days ago we decided to visit the Great Wal。l.
Toda。y we met at the bus stop early in the morning. When。 we were on the bus, we saw a lot of new buildings and new shops.Beijing was taller than before, I thought.
It took us about two hours to get to the Great Wall. Wh。en the Great Wall appeared in front of us, w。e couldn' , t help thinking how wonderful it is! I wondered how the people in the past built it without modem machines. It is said you can see it from the space.I was proud of it.
After coming home I made up my mind。 to study harder than before. When I。 grow up, I will work hard t。o m。ake our country more beautiful and stronger.
If you don't go to the Great Wal。l, you won' t become a hero.
