Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Three days from now a national regulation will go into effect that will fine up to 500,000 yuan ($62,500) anyone who damages the Great Wall…taking earth or removing bricks, included.
Uh…I hope the statutes of limitations have expired on me.
I visited the Great Wall a while back with a friend who shall remain nameless since she still visits China often.
I had my running shoes on so I decided to take the extended tour – that is I ran along the wall for a ways till I got far away from the crowd.
I then picked up a rock/brick, small enough to fit in my pocket and brought it home.
As it turns out that could cost me $62 grand or up to 10 years in prison now.
Three men in Inner Mongolia will find out what the current punishment being meted out is. They damaged about 98 meters ( a football field long) of the Wall.
The village head called the wall – “a pile of earth.”
The village head may soon be saying from inside some other confined area…” they are just walls.”
What do you think?
