The Warriors

Today's outing took us midtown to University and Bloor.  Our first stop was to the ROM to check out the Warrior Emperor and the China's Terracota Warriors  It's only here in Toronto until Jan 2 and they extended their opening until 8pm.

What a truly magnificent piece of sculpture / art!  Imagine curving out the details on each "8000 warriors; 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses".  The majority of which are still buried in the three pits found by local farmer.  Amazing!

Then we were off to Club Monaco, Winners and Banana Republic for some shopping.  Winners won out.

I always thought mid-town was St. Clair up to Lawrence thereabouts...

Bloor & Avenue is pretty much downtown, sis :)
