Shanghai Get-together For Fodorites!

Jump to last reply

I have enjoyed posting trip reports and reading the experiences of others here on Fodors now for some time. But up to now, all of the experiences have been "remote". Until recently when "Shanghainese" and I started to correspond and we found that she was going to be in Shanghai, visiting her 100-year-old mother! And we were able to carve out some time to have a great get-together here in Shanghai where Aline (Shanghainese) was able to show us some her classic hometown (Shanghai) style food!

What a great treat it was! Great food, great company and great stories! And finally being able to connect with a fellow Fodorite in person! With so many things we all have in common, this is something we should do more often!

As a side note, one of most fascinating things we learned about Shanghainese that evening was that she actually attended the EXACT same school at which I am currently employed! The famous, Shanghai American School. Aline attended the school before it closed due to the civil war in the late 1940's. And this year we are celebrating our centenial! We were priviledged on many levels to share a meal with "Shanghainese"

Here is a link to one of the images we took that night:

Cheers,

Coke
