pandas



spent the weekend 'down south'... at least that is what i like to think of it.

I wanted to see the pandas at the National Zoo before they are sent back to China. We visited them when they first arrived, probably ten years ago. I'll have to dig up my video footage.





not the best pictures.... i wish they had been outside. they were busy sleeping (first picture) and/or eating (second picture).

I'm not a fan of zoos... it's a mixture of the poor habitats for the animals and the crowds (mostly children). but, the national zoo must have lots of funding because most of the habitats are quite large and well kept and since it is free, i guess i am more tolerant of the shrieks!
