As with so many other places which I have only had the pleasure of reading about, they captivate my imagination, cultivate my dreams, these places fascinate so much of my waking consciousness and yet, my personal world is so very small! I go to work and drive through state after state and I feel like my personal world is fairly large but then when my mind is free to wonder and my imagination is calling me away from the moment I recall these images of vast walls, valleys far, far away and armies of perfect human replicas from days long gone and peoples long dead and I can’t find a good answer for why I have not even applied for a passport so that should the moment ever sweep me away, I could find my feet on fabulous shores and maybe for a while I could feel a little bit more alive, and such an experience would surely continue to pay me it’s dividends for the rest of my life!over 5 years ago
To clear up an earlier statement that implied the discoverers who sign books at the site may not have been authentic.
There were three farmers who discovered the terracotta warriors. None were given any compensation when the government took over their land nor were they paid anything for their discovery. Due to a settlement in a prolonged legal battle , they are now allowed to sign books for a fee at the site. They usually are in different areas of the complex. It is certainly an unique experience to meet them.The book are not all that expensive and they charge the equivalent of two US dollars to sign and stamp the book. There’s usually a line but the farmer I met was very friendly and reacted quite favorably to my feeble attempts to speak Chinese.over 6 years ago
