“I went to Wolong as a volunteer in May. I just wanted to let you know that all the Pandas were well and happy. I cleaned out Soo Yee (My spelling.) and fell hopelessly in love with her. I am a 61 year old Englishman recovering from cancer and if anybody is thinking about going to Wolong (You should beg, borrow, steal or murder to get the chance to go.)  Everybody should make a list of 10 things to do before they are too old and a visit to Wolong should be very high on the list.

P.S If you volunteer at Wolong, remember that on your last day, you have to return the overalls. It is hot work, but you should wear trousers under the overalls.
