***One single warning – DON’T DRINK THE WATER or HAVE ANYTHING MADE FROM THE WATER ie. MOCHA FRAPPICCINO.

Monday night began my 72+ hours of hell in China. In some Mexico it is called Montezuma’s Revenge, I’m not exactly what it is called in China, but I call it General Pao’s Revenge, and it isn’t fun. If you read my article on Shanghai, I noted not to drink frozen drinks while in China. I made the mistake of having a Coke with ice, 2 Icee’s, a Dairy Queen frozen drink, and a Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks. In China, you must only drink water from sealed bottles and no ice. My mistake nearly caused me to miss going to the Great Wall of China.
