Hello everyone and thank you so very much for all your comments!! As soon as we visit an internet cafe we will do a very thorough update with pix . In the mean time keep checking the video and audio updates .
Last night we had a blast at the Sichuan Opera with Mickal , his wife and their little daughter Minnie. I have such cute video of her entertaining us at the vegetarian restaurant last night before we went to the opera.
Today was Panda day at Bifengxia and I have a long story to tell, but the short version is we have some great pix and picked out our panda to adopt and her name is Hua Bao. We also have to pick our group adoption pandas fromthe photos so stay tuned!!
I see we have had more contributors to the adoption fund and THANK you so much . I will write each of you soon to let you know I got your paypal payment.
For now I’ll sign off but will have much more tomorrow after we return from Chengdu Panda base. We are off in search of a supermarket for wine and relax for the nite. I’m so sorry there are no pix yet but we will hit a real internet cafe tomorrow to do all our updates.
Luv and panda hug……Sandra and GAyle…Steve I miss you …you would have loved the panda we got to pet !!!!!
I really hope you got to check on Mei Lan and Tai!!!
So happy to hear you’re having a blast 😉

Have a great day and be sure to rest and relax when you can.
Any news regarding Lani and Tai will be greatly anticipated and appreciated! Especially news that Lani is eating and starting to adjust. Have a great time!

Well I finally figured out that there were actual messages on your postings – glad to hear you made it there ok and that you have visited the pandas. Pandas were in the news here last week because of the one that was just returned to China – was he going to the Bifengxia Base?
We have actually had 3 days without rain here so this fair weather gardener got lots of yard clean-up done. What have you noticed in bloom there?
Looking forward to more of your messages! Love, Jan

Have a great time there!
I have as everybody has, concern for Tai Shan and Mei Lan, I saw a video on Chinese news channel showing and saying Tai was adapting well, he was eating , I saw them give him a big carrot on film, but they said he did not like the panna bread. they said it was mainly cornbread and he wasn’t used to it. I am sure the vet that went with him will discuss his digestive problems.
They said Mei Lan was really upset with the loud celebration at arrival, and that she had withdrawn and would not eat, it showed her climbing the cage ,she looked a little frazzled, and then showed her in back of compartment enclosure? just laying there. My heart broke of course for her.
They reported as if they were both in the same place. they said they were at their ancestral home in Sichaun. I pray by now they are both doing well!
thank you 4 yur updates, I just started looking. kinda been in mourning this weekend.
cant wait to see pics of the stuff you are doing. and i sure hope that little panda girlie comes around. i wish someone from the states could be with her to help her adjust. one of her trainers or someone she knew and saw everyday. have fun, be safe!!!!
