Day 92 – Xian, China (Terracotta Army)
Despite being totally exhausted from our train ride last night, today we visited Emperor Qinshihuang’s Mausoleum Site Museum (since we only have two days to explore Xian). There we saw the “Eight Wonder of the World”, the world famous Terracotta Army. What an amazing site! A lot of the ancient artifacts are still unexcavated. There were three pits which showcased the terracotta warriors at different stages of excavation (pit #1 was the most impressive). The Terracotta Army dates back over 2,000 years and is a rich part of China’s history.
