There have been times in the past where I have discovered places that have absolutely wowed me. And selfishly, I confess, I’ve thought twice before telling the world about my discoveries. Mostly because for a moment, I wanted to keep them to myself. Today’s review is about a restaurant that has consistently wowed me. And […]

Allow my dog Daisy to demonstrate to you my level of frustration, and annoyance at the moment: You see that look in her eyes that tells you she’s nearly had enough (she kind of hates costumes). Well, I’m not going to sugar coat it — that’s how I feel at the moment. Some of you […]

After the conclusion of our dumpling tour, the Husband and I spent several hours wandering through the beautiful tree-lined streets of the French Concession (so named as this part of Shanghai was an official French settlement from 1849-1946).

The Husband, and I are not typically organized tour people. Instead, we prefer to go at it alone in a foreign country, fumbling over words in a language vastly different from our own, and studying maps and guidebooks ahead of time so as to plan our trip. That’s why I was a bit taken aback […]
