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!)
