“Pit 2” at the Terracotta Army Archeological Site near Xian, China

Discovery of the Terracotta Army (Terracotta Warriors and Horses) near Xian, China is one most significant archeological finds of the 20th century. Each unique, life size, terracotta figure, arranged in battle formation are believed to be modeled after actual persons. Work is ongoing at the site and it is estimated only half of the statues have been unearthed.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
