Chengdu, China
SEPTEMBER 16-17, 2009

After Xi'an we took a short one-hour flight to Chengdu. Time to see the infamous pandas! Chengdu was quite the happening place; lots of shopping, restaurants and bars, the city filled with neon lights in the evening, and seemed like a great city to spend some FUN time in. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to experience the nightlife that much as I (Sandra) got a bit sick...Some strange nausea that didn't want to go away, so we had to spend most of our time at the hotel (at least I had to recover in a suite, which was nice for work and recuperating purposes).

But the highlight of visiting this city was of course the PANDAS, luckily I was feeling a little better and was able to take the 40 minute drive out to the Panda Research Center   - Phhuuu, I was so happy that I was not too sick to go. Never thought I would like it that much (with all the "furriness" and smell and all) but guess what?!! I most definitely did; we had a fabulous time at the center and just loved seeing the big pandas, but the best of all was watching the baby pandas, play, eat and sleep. Sooo cute and cuddly, a time we will remember forever...
