This was one of my favorite moments on my trip. I can't believe I got to see THREE giant pandas! I really wish we had pandas in New York, but in America they are only in Memphis, Atlanta, San Diego, and Washington. There are three zoos with pandas in Europe- maybe we can go to those cities on our next western Europe trip!
I'm finally back in New York City! I went on a road trip out to Wisconsin and back. It was lots of fun, but I'm glad to be home- except that it's so, so hot and humid in the city right new. Ew!
I got to do a lot of things on my trip. Some of my favorites were:
Visiting John Glenn's childhood home. He was America's first astronaut.
Hanging out at my friend Maia's house in Ohio! We hadn't seen each other since last July, so we had a lot to catch up on.
Seeing the movie Kung Fu Panda. I liked the tiger the best. I started to get really excited about pandas after we watched the movie, especially when I realized that Jen had never seen a panda!
Going to the National Zoo in Washington DC! I got to see THREE pandas and play in a bamboo forest. Actually, if you count the red pandas, I saw five. The red pandas are really cute. I've decided that the next time I get to see Violet, we'll go exploring and see if we can find one in the wild!
Now and I'm home- and I'm really glad Iris made me clean my room before I left on my trip. I really didn't want to tidy then, because I was so excited, but it was really nice to come home to a clean room.!
