Yesterday we were fortunate enough with good weather to go see the Panda's!! We took a long bus ride but got to stop at the McDondalds. hahaha typical americans, but we were in a hurry! The food tastes alot better than in the states. Im not sure if its because I havent had any in a while but it was delish. Of course, i had to get a mcflurry to satisfy my ice cream bug. Getting to the park we had to walk a little while to get to the viewing area. They were separated by large adult panda, and smaller cubs. The big panda's weren't as big as i thought they were going to be. Also, they were more of a yellowish color than a white. I was snapping pictures like crazy, just trying to get the perfect photo. I got some really good ones that you can see below. One of the panda's was just chillen eating the whole time we were there. Others were just walking around or lounging. They seemed to love posing for all the cameras. haha I also snatched up a panda hat from the gift shop that you'll see. Its pretty awesome, you'll see me rocking it around pullman for sure. The baby panda were so cute! there were 2 of them, climbing and playing with each other
Afterwards, we headed over for a nice dinner with the whole group. It was a girls birthday in a group so Bernie took us all out and treated us to a really nice meal. We had what they call "hot pot" its sorta like fondue that we have in the states. We all had our own pots though, so that was pretty cool. Bernie ordered us alot of different dishes to try. We had pork, lamb, beef, noodles, tofu, veggies, and stomach. Yes, you heard me. I tried stomach. It actually wasn't that bad, just really chewy.ahahaha. Then we all had birthday cake then headed home for the day. It was a really fun day with everyone getting to see some pretty cool things.
Anyways, hopefully you all are going to be tuning in and cheering for the Cougs tonight in their battle with UW. Thanks for checking in and following me in my journey here in China. Talk to you all soon!
