Beyond description. So overwhelmed with the history and just being a part of getting to climb a small portion of this 4,000 mile incredible achievement. So lucky to have my family, including Mom, to share this with.

Not discovered until 1974 by a local farmer digging (who, by the way, was autographing his book while we were there... he's a millionaire now!)

This is so fascinating! During the Ming Dynasty, the emperor wanted to make sure he was prepared for the afterlife so it took 720,000 men (slaves essentially) 80 years to build his army to guard his tomb. When discovered much was broken and the archeologists are putting them back together piece by piece. No two look alike and they are between 5'10" and 6 ft! Tall for Chinese! They also had weapons and horses and chariots! Some call this spectacular sight the 8th wonder of the world.

Once in a lifetime... She is only 10 months old! We volunteered (even Bill!) tomorrow to clean up and weigh their poop and feed them. Talk about a "Busman's Holiday!"
