The Great Wall of China

长城/万里长城

Recommendation by Lemi

In 1988, performance artists Marina Abramović and her partner Ulay ended their 12-year relationship of artistic collaboration and personal intimacy at The Great Wall of China. It was called “The Lovers: The Great Wall Walk.” Marina and Ulay started from two opposite points of the wall and made their way by foot to the middle over 90 days. They met, said their final goodbyes in embrace, and ended an intense relationship. It was a beautiful end; one that cannot be wholly replicated, unless you let your partner in on the plan, have 90 days to spare, and government permission. Consider the wall as a site, though. It has survived direct attack and so can the two of you. A trip to this wonder of the world is sure to change your life in one way—adding another will make for a colorful story to look back on.
