Teacher friends in Iowa, be jealous. I know we’ve been spoiled these past 2 weeks, but last night was just too good to be true: complementary cocktail hour at the Ritz Carlton in Pudong. Of course I’ve never stayed or visited any Ritz Carlton hotel and considering the stores surrounding it were Cartier, Tiffany, and Armani, I knew that this would be a treat! Our bus arrived first and we were escorted to the elevators. After stopping at the 30th or so floor we were shuffled into another elevator where we arrived to the Flair Bar on the 58th Floor! Here we were eye to eye with the top of the Pearl Tower. Take a look at the photos! It was really amazing….of course it was really hot, but because we were the 1st group to arrive it was nice to have lots of space to take pictures etc. Also this high up, you really see the pollution. Either way it was beautiful!
