Tea-time at the Peace Hotel

Don't you love it when you move half-way around the world to find out that someone who lived 5 minutes from where you grew up has also moved half-way around the world?

Shortly after moving here in 2009 I found out from my Mom, that Cindi and her husband Dale were living/working in Shanghai off and on for his work.  Their house in the US is about 5 miles from where I grew up.  We've enjoyed their company on several occassions and on Friday I got to introduce Cindi to her first ever experience with indulging in high tea!

I've been wanting to get inside the Peace Hotel ever since they re-opened last year and this was a perfect opportunity.  As always, I am fascinated by the history that surrounds many of the buildings in Shanghai.  This place is beautiful ... and the tea is amazing!  (Way more food than even I could eat!)
