Things I Discovered in 2009: Countries


I went to China for 2 weeks, which is weird. We hopped around cities in a loop in and out of the country: Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Longsheng, Shanghai

You can find a brief photoset on Flickr

Also. I hugged a panda and scratched his ear and was not arrested and now we are pen pals. Here for my embarrassment and your viewing pleasure:

It was pretty great, and I have a necklace and bracelet and earrings and communist poster and book and mushroom cloud pin and greater understanding of that giant country.

Oh my god that is soooo cute.

The part where they take it away from you makes me cry in my head.

You are very sweet and gentle to it. That is a good way to treat a panda.
