Happy Labor Day!

Here in China, today is labor day – a national holiday. We celebrated the day off by joining all other parents with small children at the local zoo. A large percentage of China’s 1 billion people seemed to be at the zoo with us. Luckily, we are fairly accustomed to the crowds at this point.

To add to the excitement, the zoo has 3 new pandas, and no animal is more exciting to the Chinese than a fat and happy panda. The pandas didn’t disappoint. JM even got interviewed by a reporter for a news article. This is not the first time this has happened, since he is tall and white and very easy to spot in a crowd here (lucky for me, as crowds are common – I haven’t lost him yet).

Leo seemed most interested in the tigers, he even ventured a tentative, “Meow?” in their direction.

We ended the day by celebrating the fact that we officially found a new apartment for next year. The best part is that it’s on the 3rd floor (instead of the 7th) and that means there are only 36 steps to hike up, instead of 96 – yay!
