It's a little difficult writing about the terra cotta warriors because the view and the concept is so overwhelming. There were three pits, but this one was the best. The third pit was an excavation site with only dirt showing, but it did have about 5 of the best complete, most interesting warriors.

Getting to and back from the museum was difficult though, it was an incredibly long walk. Every museum I've been to in China has a small or no parking lot and a walkway, including random stairs that take up more space than the museum itself. I was exhausted by the time we left the third pit. I am very concerned that we may have missed one of the museums but I simply couldn't go any farther.





This was under glass, but I was 16 inches away from him.
