    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There’s a new picture hanging inside Table Rock House -one that symbolizes the friendship and co-operation between two famous attractions a world apart.

    On Thursday, Niagara Parks Commission chairman Jim Williams, Mayor Ted Salci and Regional Chairman Peter Partington welcomed a delegation from China’s YanQing County and the Badaling Great Wall Administration to Table Rock.

    The NPC has a partnership with officials there for cross promotion of the two iconic destinations and for the exchange of information about preservation efforts.

    The parties unveiled a picture of the Great Wall of China as part of the official greeting ceremony.
