Coquitlam residents reported spotting a panda bear riding a motorcycle through their neighbourhoods today! This created much excitement amongst their children who were getting out of school in local elementaries. Highway traffic also reported seeing the panda letting it rip on a motorbike along local highways. It seemed to understand honks and wide grins and gave many thumbs up!
Scientists ask that you report the panda's whereabouts to authorities if you have seen it. They are keenly interested in the opposable thumb coordination required to operate the clutch and brake.
As you might imagine, I am finding being back to reality a bit......anticlimactic. About 4 days after returning home, I planned a trip around New Zealand and half of Ireland with a gander at Scotland.
Acknowledging that none of those destinations are likely to happen unless I win the lottery, I'm trying to think of how I can give you some more adventures with something interesting. Stay tuned as I arrange to meet people doing interesting things! Not sure what format it will take yet, but working on it as I juggle the tasks of "real" work and these new ideas that are forming in my head faster than I can act on them!
