One of my most treasured memories of my last trip to China is our stop at a Panda sanctuary outside Xi’an. I had never before seen a live panda and I was in awe of their beauty.

They had pandas old and young in enclosures similar to a western zoo like the one in San Diego. They all seemed perfectly content. The older ones were munching on a pile of bamboo on their laps and the younger were climbing trees and wrestling with each other.

I took many many pics of my time there but here are a few of my favorites:
