Day 1: We Have Arrived in Chengdu!

Chengdu, where pandas live and the food is so spicy that no amount of milk can fix the irreparable damage to your taste buds. Madison and I were picked up by our host family when we got to the airport. I don’t know about Madison, but my family’s Sichuan dialect was so hard to understand that my sleep deprived brain only knew what they were saying half the time. For dinner I was fed some really great 水饺(shui jiao), or water dumplings in English. I can’t wait to see the pandas tomorrow. -Eon Kounalakis, Grade 11
