In between training programs in Shanghai, China, I was able to visit Xi'an and see the sights, including the famous Terracotta Warriors.

|In contrast to the Terracotta Warriors, |
burial objects unearthed in this tomb include clay figurines of farm
animals, people, tapestries and jars.

each representing a different part of the emperor's administration.

to see into the pits.
