Xi Xi is the only female panda that I am taking care of and today I got to pet her back. Yesterday was amazing seeing the pandas for the first time and today I touched one, feeding them is always fun but Mei Shen is the young male, 8 years old and he ate pretty slow but starting to catch up. Seems like those two are the lazy pandas but who can tell when you have just one look at them, I think Xi Xi is even more lazy. Today I found her sleeping inside while the other two was outside, if I call them they would come in, but only because they think that they are getting fed. They always seem to eat. Cleaning was not as bad, getting more and more used to it, but it will take me a bit longer when Marie leaves. Our keeper doesn't speak any English, well we got a few phrases: Let's go, bamboo, ok and more. I think we are getting there but I don't really mind he seems like a cool guy.
