Xian, China - home of the Terra Cotta Soldiers
Submitted: Jun 07, '08
Great Travel Moment
Seeing and being so close to the Terra Cotta Soldiers was breathtaking. These 8000 clay life size figures are more than 2000 years old, but were only found about 28 years ago. I also felt a tremendous sense of relief and gratitude that these relics had not been found at the time of Mao's cultural revolution.
