Having viewed the first two pits we proceeded to the third pit which had displays of the figures behind glass that you could get close to and study them in detail.

Having visited the pits we proceeded to the museum store in search of a book on the warriors and some T-shirts. An advantage of purchasing your book here is that you can get a copy autographed by one of the villagers who discovered the tomb in 1974. It only cost a few RMB (Chinese money) so why not? Of course I realize that the autographed book and about a dollar will get me a cup of coffee almost anywhere I want.

We managed to also buy some nice quality T-shirts that, I'm happy to report, haven't shrunk after several washings. Chinese T-shirts (as I've previously mentioned) are notorious for shrinking.

Leaving the museum we headed off to lunch at a nearby restaurant. Yes, it was approved for tourist by the National Tourism Board as every place we visited was.

After lunch we proceeded back toward Xi'an to visit Dayan Ta, the Great Wild Goose Pagoda. Continue to the next page to see its picture ...
