Repairs Along the Great Wall of China
The Chinese are working to restore the wall. There are several sections that are crumbling (you'll see them a few shots later). These guys use donkeys to haul stone up and a makeshift crane to raise the stones up the wall.
Also interesting in this picture is the lack of foliage you see growing on the Mongolian side of the wall (right side of this picture). Drainage was set up to go toward the Beijing side, and the spigots divert the water a couple of feet from the base of the wall. If foliage were to grow, it could weaken the masonry. If water were to accumulate at the base, it would erode the foundation.
