Once were warriors

(and all souvenirs are made in China!)

overcast

Today was the Terracotta Warrior day. Who ever thought a pit of statues would be so amazing. Each warrior was unique. A real stone army. One of the last remaining farmers who discovered the terracotta warriors enjoys 'rock star' status, signing souvenir museum books. Sinking that well a few inches either way - and none of these amazing artefacts would have ever been discovered.
Major souvenir shopping today - easy to pick up a more authentic souvenir in this country - everything is made in China!
A visit to the Drum Tower and old city walls with a bike ride along the top of the wall completed our day.
