Later we took the hour drive to the spectacular Terra-cotta warriors and after several pee breaks we finally arrived. It was a long walk to the first pit. There are three pits that all contain warriors (the first one was the most excavated and the biggest, the second was barely dug out because they are waiting for greater technologies to preserve them and the third is the smallest with only 68 warriors). It took over 700,00 workers to build it back over 2000 years go. The terra-cotta warriors were discovered on March 29 1974 by a local farmer when he was digging a well. He hit something hard and then dug it up. He noticed that it was a head of a clay solider and then they dug it all up. Today we met the farmer who discovered this so called 'eighth wonder of the world' and he signed a book that we bought. He is 80 years old and you were not allowed to take his photo so everyone will buy his book. It was sooooooo interesting.
Then on the way back to our hotel tonight it took a long time because we got stopped by a train. Our driver turned around and went a different way because it takes about 45 minutes for the train to cross. They can't tell exactly when the train will come so they stop the traffic about 15 minutes before the actual time. Then it takes about 30 minutes for the train to pass.
