Giant pandas, bad news and farewell:
We left it till last but the main tourist attraction in Chengdu is the Giant Panda Breeding Centre where, if you get there at the right time (early for morning feeding) you can wander round and see lots of giant pandas, both adults and children, enjoying improbably vast quantities of bamboo. Some viewpoints were pretty crowded but at others, you had great unimpeded views of the pandas. Though ...

... sharing. Teddy got hooked on the chicken fried steak (complete with gravy and mashed potatoes), I had a very good chicken burrito, and we also had fajitas, enchiladas and chimichangas at the table. Everyone enjoyed the meal, and as is typically the case with this type of food, were too stuffed to move afterward.
