Patrick and Nicole Woo invited us to join with them for a weekend trip to Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan. Chengdu is about a 2-1/2 hour flight south of Beijing. Our major reason for the trip was to see some Panda bears! We also saw the Grand Buddha at Leshan, the Qingyanggong Taoist Temple, and ate dinner on Ancient Street.
