The Labor Day is coming soon, do you want to get away from the pressures of work , but still hesitate because everywhere is crowded? You can choose to stay at home enjoying the vegetable life, or , join the boxer hash with the hares running through the flowers and an old rustic village, and visiting the special part of the Great Wall—Yangbian Great Wall.
The Yangbian Great Wall was built in Ming dynasty. This part of the Wall was the best preserved part , that was built with only stones to set a sample for the rest. As it has not been developed as a tourist attraction, few people travel there. In the beginning of the summer, there are many begonia flowers in the area. Not only will it be a good experience for your olfactory sense, but also for your taste bud, because the eggs the restaurant serves are borne by the chickens fed in the moutains……
Oops, I should not be a spoiler, there are more great things worth discovering, and think about that you will have two days rest after boxer hash ( and bash), what excuse can you make for missing it?

** IMPORTANT NOTE: THE BEIJING BOXER HASH IS AN OFF-ROAD RUNNING HASH GOING OUT TO THE HILLS AROUND BEIJING ONCE A MONTH. WE USUALLY AIM FOR THE SECOND SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH, BUT MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE HARES’ AVAILABILITY, CURRENCY EXCHANGE FLUCTUATIONS, THE SCORE OF THE MOST RECENT BEIJING GUO’AN GAME, THE BUS DRIVER’S MOOD AND OTHER VARIABLE FACTORS WE HAVE ZERO CONTROL OVER. WE DO NOT ADJUST FOR WEATHER CONDITIONS (BRING A TOWEL, YOU WON’T DROWN) NOR POLLUTION LEVELS (THEY’RE LOWER OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS ANYWAY). IT’S OK TO WALK BUT NOT TO LALLYGAG. KEEP MOVING … WE’RE A RUNNING HASH. HEART ATTACKS ARE NOT PERMITTED. AS WE ARE OUT ON MOUNTAIN TRAILS, IT’S EASY TO GET LOST. IF YOU’RE TOO STUPID TO BRING A PHONE WITH YOU (LIM&S, LOOKING AT YOU!) AND YOU GET LOST. WE WON’T PH*CKING CARE, NOR WILL WE PH*CING PIN YOU EITHER. WE MAY OR MAY NOT SEND A SEARCH PARTY LOOKING FOR YOU. IF WE DO, CHANCES ARE IT WILL CONSIST PRIMARILY OF RABID DOGS AND HUNGRY WOLVES. THAT BEING SAID, WE ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOU JOIN US AND HOPE YOU ENJOY A GREAT DAY! (BY THE WAY, NO YOU WON’T BE BACK FOR YOUR IMPORTANT DINNER DATE BRING THEM ALONG INSTEAD)
