Peace, perfect peace
Once we reached the end of the "core" section of wall we were supposed to be walking, we continued onto a short extra section. By this point we were absolutely elated - a hard day's walking was coming to an end and it had been great, we felt physically fantastic, and best of all, the hawkers didn't follow us onto this section. The peace was just incredible. You could stop and listen and hear nothing but birds and the occasional distant voice. It was absolutely gorgeous: one of the golden moments of my life.
