19980619-0023ac Texas Awesome Reproduction of the Excavated Buried Army of China Xi'An
The terra-cotta army of China Xi'An has been reproduced in Texas near Houston in real size as also the Forbidden City of Beijing in an extensive miniature! No need of a plane ticket for US citizen to visit these places! Image of our 1998 largest USA trip and the longest drive for me as I am the only driver (8,061 miles or 12,970 km with a rental car during 23 days) from Houston to Montana by the Rockies and back by Utah Arizona and all the Mexican border to Padre Island and Houston; The real goal of this was to find and reach a place seen in an American brochure on a precedent trip: the Square Top Mountain as falling in the upper lake of the Green River, an image of Eternity, the most typical American landscape in my opinion while not being a National Monument or a National Park, neither a State Park! USA Texas Houston West Katy Area.(Slide scan 023/882 19980619-0023ac)

Il n'y a qu'eux pour faire des choses pareilles, ils veulent les merveilles du monde 'at home' comme dans pas mal de parcs à thème ou à Las Vegas, merci Régis

Je suis bien de ton avis, ça viendra peut-être avec le nouveau Président; Oui nous avons vu les originaux aussi à Xi'An en Chine, peu de différence à vrai dire, ils sont forts dans ce domaine nos chers cow-boys! Merci Pierre!
