Some of you know that I want to visit the Panda’s in China. Well I was thinking of going this year (and then just NYC next year) but I already had the Venice trip planned. I was seriously considering rescheduling the trip and taking the Panda trip this year…even contacted the WWF for more info.
When I heard the news about the quake I told Joe that is where the pandas are and I would have been there at that time. I would have had another story about how things only happen to me...
From National Geographic website:
Twelve Americans, part of a tour of China sponsored by the conservation group WWF, were visiting the breeding center when the earthquake hit. All of the tourists survived the quake.
Tour began May 5 Beijing on May 5 and was scheduled to depart from Shanghai on May 18.
