Travelling to Maweiyi Cultural Town took about 90 minutes by bus. Per Hannah, it seemed like China's equivalent of Williamsburg. Upon entering the town there were so many sights and sounds. It was literally like stepping back in time from the décor, to the traditional foods, to even the regalia of individuals dressed up performing.
Every type of food you could imagine was there! Some tried duck head, scorpion, rabbit, bugs, and brains to name ...
... The tomb was broken in to and they proceeded to destroy the terra cotta warriors. When discovered, they had been crushed, smashed, burned, chariots destroyed and history buried for 2000 years. It is sad to see these in various stages of piecing them back together.
The warriors were originally wearing colorful armor and clothing. Until recently, once they were unburied, the color immediately disappeared. Today, they have found ways to keep the color ...
... and decided to go together. First stop was food, so we had the fun of trying to get a taxi to take us near enough to the wall. It turns out that at certain times of the day the taxi drivers are limited to how far they can go, so it took us a few tries to find one. I was lucky again, to be with 2 Chinese speaking people, so they could at least communicate with the drivers. We wandered around for a bit before coming across a Korean Buffet BBQ restaurant, perfect!
... out you lost what you wrote. Sometimes I just give up after a period of trying. It has been really frustrating at times.

... as much but we enjoyed it as much as the Terracotta Warriors. Here the statutes were a lot smaller but it was really cool that you could walk on a mezzazine floor over the pits where the statutes were discovered. On our return, there was enough time for a quick Papa Johns before getting on the train to Chengdu - a 16 hour train on *************ly!! Be prepared for a long blog on this before too long!!
Thank you to Andy Shaw for our visit to the Terracotta Warriors.
