It’s the last day of First Lady Michelle Obama’s trip to China, and she couldn’t leave without one final stop: the Chengdu Panda Base. “As we learned about these pandas and their future, I also spent some time reflecting on their past.  Believe it or not, pandas have actually played a leading role in world events over the past few decades through a custom known as “Panda Diplomacy.” It’s a tradition that dates back at least to the seventh century, and over the past few decades, panda diplomacy has been part of how China has reached out to other nations”,  the First Lady expressed on her travel journal.
