We had a glorious trip to Hong Kong, one of the most exciting cities in the world. But a side trip up to Guangzhou formerly Canton turned out to be the highlight of the entire trip. We had a stop at the Guangzhou Zoo, one of the largest in China. There we came almost face to face with a giant South Chinese Tiger. His cage bars were no more than four feet from us and we got to see him up close and personal. A more magnificent creature I have never seen. He looked like a size 100 wearing a size 150 skin…to watch his beautiful coat move as he paced and be so close we could hear him breathe was an experience that changed me forever. We can’t let these magnificent creatures disappear and I’m going to do what I can to help make certain later generations can experience the wonder of Tigers.
