Chengdu Panda Reserve
Starting to run out of time…. So from Lijiang it was 24 lovely hours on a sleeper bus to Chengdu. Actually not that bad, of course surrounded by cute girls hocking spit into bags, little girls throwing up in the aisle and watching people walk through in socks, and China’s favorite past time of spitting anything with seeds in it.
In Chengdu I had just enough time to make it to the world famous Panda reserve. Saw lots of pandas gnawing on bamboo, an array of baby’s from very young on up (including some twins), and my favorites the red pandas. For different prices you can hold and touch different ages of pandas, though I abstained. Very cool place.
