... Chinese restaurant recommended by Trip Advisor.
The menu is in both Chinese and English and we had a feast
of rice and noodles and 2 huge bowls of wanton soup with 10 wantons in each bowl.

I talked to Josh about comparing this to visiting pompei, but these aren't bodies, or even of any real religious significance. They're dolls, lifesize burial artifacts for a boyking who wanted to have everytthing after death that he had in life. Our pictures will do a better job.
