China's chocolate Great Wall, with 560 chocolate terracotta-styled warriors

China imported 85 tons of Belgian chocolate to create near the Olympic site a chocolate wonderland.  It includes (in dark chocolate, with white chocolate as mortar) the Great Wall of China and much else more, such as an army of 560 chocolate soldiers modeled on the famous terracotta warriors.  For more, see here.  The chocolate wonderland is both a tourist attraction and a way of encouraging the Chinese (who eat very little chocolate) to acquire a taste for it.
