Terra Cotta Soldiers from Epcot to Manhattan

 I recently had the opportunity to see one of China's rarest treasures up close and personal.  The Discovery Times Square Exposition center in Manhattan features some of Shi Huangdi's Terra Cotta warriors at a once in a lifetime exhibit! These may seem farmiliar to even those of you who do not have a passionate love of history as I do because in the China Pavilion in Epcot there is replica Terra Cotta army.  (In my photo above you can see me at Epcot in the top and a few pics from NYC on the bottom).  Discovery TSX rarely allows photography at all so the last thing I expected was to be able to snap pictures.  This was a once in a lifetime experience that even my English Teacher husband was in awe of! If you live in the northeast don't pass it up!

And obvi I couldn't visit Manhattan without a stop to the Times Square Disney Store! I grabbed the newest release in the Around the World vinyl series that was making its way to flagship stores (Burbank, San Fran, Chicago, NYC) and my little feathered friend, Panchito!
