For our return to Beijing from our adventure in Zhangjiajie, my husband and I decided to stop by Xi’an and see the famous Terracotta Army. I have to be 100% honest – I think we were too worn out to fully enjoy the historical site. Our train ride to Xi’an was a bit of a nightmare (see A Chinese Horror Story), so by the time we arrived I had developed a cold and was a bit done with the whole travel thing. We also accidentally went backwards through the warehouses, even though we had been warned to go the other way. So here I am warning all readers: If you are visiting the army, please go to vault three, two, then one – in that order! The site will be much more impressive that way. Any history buff, however, will still be amazed to see one of the most significant archaeological excavations of the 20th century.
