Last week I went to Chengdu and since I had taken pictures of the pandas earlier in the day I decided that I wanted to take a nap and then would be ready for another set of shooting and I should since I wanted to make the most of my money, I’m kinda cheap. So around 1930 I went to the Sichuan Opera and had to buy a seat even though I never once sat down once the hour long show began, I asked if I had to buy a ticket if I wasn’t going to use the seat. I got a lot of great shots but I only posted some of the 550 I have from the night: Sichuan Opera 川剧

Last week I went to the Panda Breeding Center during one of the only sunny days that central Sichuan has had in the last few weeks. Here are some of the pictures that I took: Panda Breeding Center 成都大熊猫繁育研究基地
