Day 5
We are getting into a bit of a routine here. Aislinn woke a little after 6 today so we were down to breakfast by 7:15 & back up in our room & down for a nap by 8:30.After she woke it was off to see The Terracotta Army. It took about a hour to get there & oh so worth it. The figures, were discovered in 1974 by some local farmers and date to 210 BC. The figures vary in height, according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals. The figures include warriors, chariots, horses, officials, acrobats, strongmen and musicians. Current estimates are that in the three pits containing the Terracotta Army there were over 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which are still buried in the pits. (yes I borrrowed this information from wikipedia) There was three different pits that we walked thru. Afterwards we went to Subway for lunch.
We also went to see where they make these figues to be sold & some beautiful prints.
Goodnight from Xi'An


This is an account of our lifes as we head down the path of life towards our first child. An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break." --An ancient Chinese belief
