... that each finished warrior is a miracle. And imagine what secrets the next pit could hold. Imagine what might be found in the Emperor's mound? A great afternoon! We rounded out the evening with a dumpling banquet and the Tang Dynasty Show. It was a relaxing and entertaining show and we enjoyed the fun of sampling so many different tastes in the banquet. We were feeling on a high as we headed towards Mr Shin for the ride home ....and so the story began! Pedometer total; 7 719 Temperature: 28 ...

... yet to enter it (only probes and sensors have been inside). The levels of mercury exceed 100 times the normal occurring rate. It is also rumoured that Qin actually ingested mercury as it would supposedly make him live longer, when it fact it just made him die suddenly and earlier than he hoped.

Going early was a great idea. We later heard of people that took three hours just to return to the hostel, as they had left later in the day. Staying at the hostel was the other great idea. We met so many lovely people, and it was so nice to be able to speak English easily to everyone around us. Rob, Renee, Christina, Carmen, Bart and Peter were all great company, and hopefully we will keep in contact.

... we decided we'd walk around and sample pretty much everything. I spent so much money here, simply because I'd take two more steps and see something tasty. Never, ever go to the Muslim Quarters hungry. Things, obviously, were pricey (10rmb for a small stick of chicken compared to 3 in Hechuan), but it was a really cool experience and finally a change of food. Be thankful you live in America, because there we actually have variety. I never thought a truly homogeneous society ...
