Ganbei! - China an Asian Vacation


We say "Cheers" - They say "Ganbei".

So every culture has something to say when they give a toast, but in China it is often the word "Ganbei" that is used.

So this group with me included was sitting in the same room that President Carter and his family sat in for dinner a few years earlier.

It is a private dining room in the "Green Wave" a famous and highly touted restaurant in Shanghai.

We have been there twice, but that time was in the special dining room all thirteen of us.

Yep thirteen, after all of the guests and 3 full time waitresses assigned for our room, had arrived. In this case, it was a lucky number.
