Little Panda, from Excitement to Desperation

If only I knew Panda Language ...

Chengdu, December 28th 2011

Everything I saw and experienced at Panda Base in Chengdu was great. However, something rather touching like this little panda, I cannot just let go. Neither should my readers.

Little Panda wanted to climb a tree. But Little Panda couldn't make it up very much. Then Little Panda went to a "thinner tree" apparently thinking that the thinner the stem is, the easier it would be. It's actually the opposite. Especially with that pillow-like chest and tummy, it would be magic to climb a tree which is not more than a piece of stick. Needless to say, Little Panda failed.

Little Panda walked to a pile of logs, lifted one foot up, but hesitated. Little Panda turned back and walk slowly, one step after another, very contrary to when it ran to the big tree in the beginning. Comparing how Little Panda walked in the beginning and at the end made the impression that Little Panda was rather desperate, disappointed with itself. Poor Little Panda. If only I knew Panda Language, I would like to tell Little Panda, "Come on, don't give up! You can! 加油小熊猫!!"

Watch my footage through. You'll feel the same thing.

Once again, pardon me for the bad shaking during the filming. The reason is still the same: I forgot I was filming. I giggled, and my hands simply joint in the rhythm.
