This was my equivalent of the sample “Hello, world!” post that WordPress creates for you when you’re first setting up a blog. I called it Visiting Panda Plop Town because Visiting Panda Plop Town is what my fingers typed, and now that I’ve been staring at it for a few days, I’ve become quite fond of it. An urban center where pandas gather to defecate wouldn’t be high on my list of vacation spots, but as a title it’s cheerful enough. It can stay.
The photo is of my husband Rob and his father on a hilltop in Queenstown, New Zealand. Pretty sure Panda Plop Town looks nothing like this.
