ガイドのJayは英語が上手で、パンダのことを熟知しているとても素晴らしいガイドさんです。もし成都のパンダプライベートツアーで悩んでいる方はJAYとのこのプライベートツアーすごくおススメです。特別な1日になること間違いなしです。 Jayに朝Hotelで拾ってもらいDujiangyan Arcというパンダリサーチセンターを訪れ、ボランティアで、まずはDieDieというパンダのお世話をしました。思っているよりも本気の重労働でしたが、DieDieが隣の檻から見ているので頑張って掃除をしました。パンダが自分の手に届く範囲にいて、早くしてよーと言わんばかりの顔でこちらを覗かれていて、それを見ているだけで本当に幸せでした。 その後、若いパンダとの写真撮影。パンダはエサ食べるのが夢中で、私のことなど完全に無視してましたが、私にとっては、パンダの真隣に座りパンダを抱ける(というか以外に大きい子だったので肩かけることができる)という、今思っても夢だったんじゃないかと思うような、すごい貴重な瞬間でした。 その後、Jayが1000年以上の歴史を持つ街子古鎮にお昼ご飯に連れて行ってくれましたが、そこで食べた中国山椒(花椒)のお蕎麦は最高に美味しかったです。 午後から戻って、成都地震の時のパンダ救済やパンダを野生に返す活動のVTRを見て、またDieDieの小屋とお庭掃除のボランティア。最後にDieDieに餌を手であげたのですが、そこでDieDieがいきなりふざけて口を何度も「アーン」と開けて明らかに私達に甘えた態度を取り始めました。その姿を見て、パンダも犬と人間のように、お互いに心が通じあう素晴らしい動物であると知り、心から感動しました。 通常の動物園ではあり得ないような、DieDieとの双方向コミュニケーションや、朝から一緒にいてパンダを身近に一緒に生活できた体験は、成都の中でもこのPandaArcでしかできない、素晴らしいものです。ボランティアもパンダとの写真撮影も、決して安い値段ではありませんが、この収益で貴重なパンダを野生に戻したり生体や生命誕生の研究に使ってもらえるなら、素晴らしいWINWINであると思います。 Jayは、DujiangyanのローカルでPandaのことを知り尽くしていて、またローカルの歴史や成都の観光スポットのこともよく知っています。私達はDujiangyanのSix Sence(そこもおススメです)に宿泊しましたが、成都のホテルにも迎えに来てくれるようです。Jayは、ステキなNice guyで性格もよく、パンダのことが大好きなとても優しいPureな中国人です。 (残念ながら日本語は少ししか話せませんが英語はすごくわかりやすいです) Jay, We are very grateful to your hospitality and kindness . You are such a great guide having not only great knowledge of Panda and locals but also having a kind and clean heart....More
