PandaLand

Today I'm in China in Chengdu. It's a capital of Sichuan province. This area is famous for spicy hot-pot dishes and it's also the "Home of Pandas". Between food (specially spicy food) and pandas, I choose pandas. Let's go see them today.

Danas sam u Kini u glavnom gradu Sečuan provincije koji se zove Čengdu. Ovaj deo Kine je poznat po veoma ljutoj hrani i kao mesto gde žive pande. Između previše ljute hrane i pandi, izabrala sam da idem a vidim pande.

9:00 ujutru

Na putu sam ka istraživačkom centru gde žive pande. Nije daleko od centra grada i ovo mesto predstavlja prirodno stanište za pande koje su nacionalno blago Kine. Pošto su zaštićena vrsta oni ih ovde čuvaju, hrane, razmnožavaju i pokušavaju da produže njihovu vrstu. Sećam se da su nam jednom rekli da je najbolje da idemo da ih vidimo što ranije jer nekada se desi da već oko 10 ujutru odu da spavaju, pa da poranimo da bi uspeli da ih vidimo. Moguće da je to u toku zime. Centar se otvara u 7:30 ujutru..

9:00 am

I'm on the way to the research center where pandas are living. I heard depends on the season sometimes is better to go there as early as possible because they go to sleep. Early means 7:30 in the morning, when it is opening.

Pandas are very valuable and rare therefor research centers are putting great effort to protect them and save this endangered animals. Giant pandas are national treasure of China. "Home of Giant Panda" is not far from the downtown Chengdu and its a natural panda's habitat.

Ovo su najlepše pande koje sam ja ikada videla. Mada kad bolje razmislim nisam nikada pre ni videla pande uživo. Izgledaju pitomo i druželjubivo ali ne verujem da se baš družile sa nama. Ipak medved je medved. Ceo dan one tako sede i jedu bambus. Ali prvo oljušte suvu koru bambusa i pojedu onu sredinu.

These are the most beautiful pandas I've ever seen. Or, when I think about it, I have never seen the panda before in my life. They look so friendly, just sitting there the whole day and eating bamboo.

The Giant panda base is a research center where they investigate and report all the important relevant things about giants pandas and their existence. Also, they feed them, monitor their health and prevent diseases that can affect their precious lifes. I never thought about pandas much, but now I realize they are a real treasure and I read there is only less than 2,000 left in the world. I got curious why do they extinct?

One the main reasons that pandas have become endangered is habitat destruction. As the population in China continues to grow, pandas’ habitat gets taken over by development, pushing them into smaller and less livable areas.

This is how baby panda looks. Not so nice :)

Ovako izgleda beba pande. Nije baš mnogo lepa. Jako je mala i ovde oni brinu o njoj da ne dobije infekcije, bolesti i da poraste u veliku crno-belu loptu. Vidite koliko je specijalne nege potrebno jednoj maloj pandi. Danas je ostalo svega oko 2000 pandi.

Vidite koliko je specijalne nege potrebno jednoj maloj pandi. Danas je ostalo svega oko 2000 pandi jer ljudska populacija raste i širi se zauzimajući njihov prostor.

I just couldn't stop looking at them!

In Chengdu everything is about pandas. All the souvenirs, decorations around the city, mugs, Starbucks, taxi cars and more, everything has a shape or picture of this black and white cute furry face.

Ovde je bukvalno sve u znaku pandi, suveniri, dekoracije na ulicama i u hotelima, taksi, Starbucks...

It didn't take us more than 4 hours to see everything and after we bought some panda toys we were on the way back to the hotel. Taxi is not expensive but good luck to explain them in English where you want to go! TIP: always take a hotel card with you and show them.

Nije nam trebalo vise od 4 sata u panda parku i nakon sto smo kupile neke igračke i suvenire vratile smo se u hotel. Taksi nije skup ali je problem objasniti taksisti na engleskom gde da vas odveze! SAVET: uvek ponesite karticu iz hotela pa im pokažite.
