In her own words, the First Lady "couldn't leave China" without seeing some pandas.

On the final day of her China trip, First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by the Chengdu Panda Base, which houses about 50 pandas. As she noted in her Travel Journal, "the base covers almost 600 square miles, and ... is the only location in the world where you can find pandas in the wild and in a research center."
