The tomb of the first Emperor of China and the Terra Cotta Warriors that guarded it

The Chinese have not opened the tomb of the Emperor and they don't know if they will. He was buried in a replica of a city and the rivers in that were made of mercury. This might be a hazard if the tomb were to be opened.

Oh what fun! You saw the same terracotta warrior exhibit that we did. You saw a lot more of China than we did though.

This was 2 different trips. In 2006 we went to Beijing, Nanjing and several cities down to Shanghai and Hong Kong. In 2007 we went to Xian, Guilen, Hong Kong, Machau and Bangkok.
