My Trip to China

We went to see the Terracotta Army.
This is an amazing place. Very difficult to describe really. We were told that a farmer when digging some years ago came across the first soldier. It has taken years of hard work excavating this one section. It covers a huge area this particular site, and there are others still to have work started on them. There are horses as well as the soldiers. They were buried under poles of wood going across as beams and this can be seen on the photo by the indentations on the ground. To me they all look rather fragile and I just hope being exposed to the weather they dont deteriorate and break down. Posted by Picasa
