More from cousin Tai, now living at the panda ranch in China:
Dear Bob, thought you might like to read my diary posts:
Feb. 4th: Boarded plane for China this morning. They didn’t let me bring my laptop or big screen TV. Said the other pandas might be jealous. Knew things were not looking good, when I was shown to my compartment and there was no padded leather seat, or glass of champagne waiting for me. Where’s my warm, moist towelette?
Feb. 6th: Boy I hate these long flights. Had a stop over in Atlanta, to pick up cousin Mei. Boy is she stuck up. She told me the pilot let her steer the plane for a while. That must have been when I got “sick”
Feb 9th: I don’t like it here. The other pandas shortsheeted my bed. They all talk Chinese and get real quiet when I walk by. I think they’re talking about me.
I’ll write again next week ( if I can get time on the communal computer.)
