Visiting the “Terracotta Warriors”

A visit to the site of China’s first emperor’s mausoleum who lived in the third century BC or more precisely the “terracotta army” guarding it, discovered only in 1974, was my purpose for going to Xi’an, China at the end of March.  The vast collection of life-size terracotta warriors with no one same face is just amazing especially when you step into “Pit 1”, the biggest of the three “pits”.  All pix of the terracotta statues here are from Pit 1.
