View from the Tower 21 of the Great Wall at Mutianyu

Along the small, narrow street lined with souvenir shops at the base of the Mutianyu Great Wall you can buy a bottle of water for 3 CNY (about .50 cents). At the peak of the climb, after the wind blows your water bottle off the parapet into the woodlands below that same bottle of water costs 20 CNY ($3.35), non-negotiable, proving that the average Chinese citizen understands completely the two basic rules of capitalism:
1- Supply & Demand
2- Location, Location, Location.
