First Lady Michelle, Sasha & Malia Obama Tour the Great Wall of China [Photos]


The Obama girls put on their good hiking shoes and spent day three of their weeklong visit to China to help promote educational exchanges between the U.S. and China  by touring the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

They walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ‘Loyal to Chairman Mao.’

The Chinese have taken to Mrs. Obama quite well — often complimenting her on her poise and style.

‘She is very warm and frank, and when she is talking to people she conscientiously listens to what they have to say,’ said Wu Qing, a retired professor of Beijing Foreign Studies University who met Mrs Obama on Sunday.

‘In China, we usually use weather to express our mood or state of mind, so the fact that the weather has been so nice these few days means she is very welcome in China,’ Wu said.
