This is my favorite from the day...so I will start with it!
They also had red pandas there...they were all sleeping, but their color was striking!
Family picture at the end.
Waiting to be picked up.
When we got back, Emily took us to an authentic local restaurant, where we had wonderful food and got to try a couple of Chengdu specialties. One was tea smoked duck, head, neck and all! At the end of the meal, we asked if anyone actually eats the head. She said yes, just not the bill, but that the brain is very good, and considered a treat. Who could resist? We all tried a nibble to say we did, but it actually tasted like smoked cream cheese :) Really! Never really thought I would ever be able to say I ate smoked duck brain...but it wasn't bad.
