Of course we know that Tian Tian and Yang Guang are not actually Scottish, I mean, it’s not like they are some exotic variation on Scottish Terriers, after all. But still, our heart starts to go pitter patter just a bit when we think of pandas gracing the British Isles once again. As you know, pandas have trod these paths before, and not so very long ago at that. Am I speaking of Chi Chi, who lived at the London Zoo from 1958 until her death in 1972? Why no! I’m speaking of the Torch Bears recent visit to Westminster Cathedral to start their round the world journey back to London for the 2012 (Panda) Olympic Games!
Working on the assumption that it is never too early to be premature, the Torch Bears are starting their Olympic journey now! Unfortunately it seems they got their instructions crossways, and were under the impression that the crowds gathered at Westminster Cathedral were there to see them off on their journey rather than to attend the Royal Wedding. Oops! Well, gosh… who doesn’t love pandas???
