Xian is my favorite city in China. You can spend hours admiring the terra cotta warriors. The life size statues created 2500 years ago, show in great detail the Chinese craftsmanship, their mastery over weapon making, horses and chariots. Marvel at the details of the clothes the average soldier wore, the headgears, the shoes, laces and even the soles to provide proper grip while walking. The display of the archer in kneeling position is surreal!
Imagine hieroglyphics in the pyramids as a living language! The more you learn about the Chinese, the more you love and respect their culture, language, art and traditions.
I want to visit Xian again in 3-4 years when they have completed the excavations, especially of the royal tomb. What a place to learn Chinese history.
Highlight of the visit: autograph of the farmer who reportedly discovered the ruins.
