I just bought tickets to Chengdu on a whim. Because why not. But now I am sitting here and I have to decide about the next big purchase. One of the big reasons to go to Chengdu is for the pandas. They have a little panda kindergarten where all the baby pandas…go to school?? And they have a huge conservatory where they all play and eat bamboo together and the cuteness is too much to handle.
Just look at this Google Image picture. Look at it.
But those sneaky manipulative folks over at the conservatory know how to rip you off. If you want to hold a panda for five minutes, you have to pay 2000 RMB. I repeat, 2000 RMB. That’s $320 for my American readers. That is disgusting. That’s 3 months of Starbucks coffees. Or 1000 trips to the baozi stand. Wowzers.
BUT I COULD HOLD A PANDA.
What to do?! Wordpress, help a girl out!
