Dan had the chance to go to the Taipei Zoo to see Taiwan's new pandas, Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan. These pandas arrived early this year and set Taiwan off into a panda frenzy! There were so many visitors back then that each visitor was allotted two minutes to watch. Luckily, by the time Dan went, the craze had died down and he could spend as long as he wanted with them. These pandas are very politically charged, and were given by China as somewhat of a political gift after the new president was elected. I won't go into the details here -- just wanted to show you how cute they are!

Here is the panda being lazy!

Time to wake up and stretch!
