My parents were so great and packed everything and loaded it up. They even cleaned the room after. I helped of course, but I feel as though the lack of sleep was already having an effect on me and was probably the beginning signs of this sickness I’m still dealing with.
We drove back to Houston the next day and unpacked everything and settled in. On Friday we made a trip to see the Terra Cotta Warriors. Although it was extremely crowded because of the holiday weekend, the exhibit was fascinating. Now true, the emperor was a megalomaniac who was obsessed with beating death and placed high taxes on the people to help support his lifestyle and fund his afterlife mini-city (which is 22 sq miles, the size of Manhattan), but to be able to stand face to face with these ancient works of art is amazing. The details that the artisans bestowed on each warrior that makes each one unique is amazing.
Oh, and there was this man walking around the exhibit and he of course scared me and I, of course, screamed in the middle of the museum. Obviously I had to get a picture with him after.

It’s great to be back in Houston with the fam and with friends, and I’m happy to be able to spend this second half of summer here at the beach and hopefully on the river!
Oh, and I get to see Lucy Lui all the time now! Look at that mug! She’s all teeth.
