That's why the guide left us go ahead.

We must knew it. The wall CLIMBS the mountains straight up to the top. Try to climb a stairway to a top of a mountain!

She was sure we would not have gone far.

One of the most fatiguing afternoons in my life. The stairs were crowded of people from all the world puffing and cursing the wall's architect, trying to reach an higher position to enjoy the landscape, even if it was so foggy.

One must was: I cannot stop for first! I must surpass at least one colleague!

We all are from big towns except for one that lives in a village on top of a mountain. He left us behind like a steinbock, happy for this fleeting moment of glory. The soundtrack of "Chariots of fire" was playing in the distance.
