I don’t remember watching much Sesame Street when I was younger, but I do remember having a recorded episode that I watched multiple times. Big Bird in China features Big Bird on a quest and walking on The Great Wall. For a long time, I think the only thing I knew about China (or Asia, for that matter) is that The Great Wall is there. So, about 25 years later, I decided that I would follow in Big Bird’s footsteps.
I wish I had been more on top of things so that I could have made some “winter is coming” and Game of Thrones puns. However, I’m too late. Winter isn’t coming; winter is here. It’s presence is well known, and I believe it will be here to stay for quite awhile.
