42. See the Giant Pandas


You will want to hug them. Don’t. People try this in China from time to time and it does not end well, because, as it turns out, pandas are still bears. Nevertheless they would rather chomp on bamboo, twenty to forty pounds a day. They don’t mind if you watch. Which you’ll do for a long time. The other day we saw a fiftyish woman in a red wool coat gazing toward the pandas and giggling like a child. zooatlanta.org
