Xi'an the warriors - beyond expectations

... 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.
