Panda Express

The Guardian (that's a newspaper, kids– ask your parents) recently ran an article about the economics of Chinese pandas. Apparently the rental of pandas to zoos is big business. It costs a zoo approximately $1 million dollars per year to rent a panda from China. A million dollars! And that amount only covers the panda itself. It doesn't include building a special panda shelter and importing fresh bamboo shoots from France.

So I guess being an architect in the 1970s must have paid extremely well!
