Today was a day filled with ups and downs. The sad part was early in the day when we departed from our homestay buddies. Afterwards we got to see the endangered pandas and a super rare brown panda. We then saw an amazing statue of laozi and made wishes near the doaist temple. Lastly, we entered the markets of xi'an and bartered with the shopkeepers.
When we visited pandas we sent “red bags” to the four panda babies—a good wish for new born! The money in red bags came from the profit of selling Chinese food to Upper School students by the Asian Cultural Society. The China Trip students help ACS donate the money and with the banner we had a picture.
