My guest this week is Ryan Campeau. We sat on my balcony in Beijing for a lengthy discussion about travel, specifically in China, Europe, and the good old US of A. Along the way, we did quite a bit of story-telling. I hope you enjoy our chat. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.
One of the places we mentioned was the panda center in Chengdu. Here's a photo and video from my trip:
We also discussed a few other parts of China...
- Ryan blogged about her thoughts when she first moved to China at alachinoise.wordpress.com.
- There are no longer any Chinese cities among the ten most polluted cities in the world. In fact, the most polluted Chinese city (according to this list) is Lanzhou, at number 36.
- There are 1864 giant pandas living in the wild in China. and around 250 living in captivity worldwide. Of these, 83 are in the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.
