We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Vinegar plays an important role in Chinese cuisine. Shanxi vinegar tops in all the vinegars in China. Vinegar produced in Qingxu County, Shanxi is one of the four most famed kinds of vinegars. The flavor of the vinegar is extremely sour but pleasant, lasting for a while at your tongue even after you swallow it. Furthermore, while most of the vinegars will go bad after long storage, Qingxu vinegar only gets tastier. Some even store the vinegar for several decades and the water dries, leaving only solid vinegar like a piece of amber.  The solid vinegar tastes still the same after it mixing with water.
The brewing technology of Qingxu Vinegar is now named intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO.
