To Shanghai for our quarterly China Operations Team meeting. We're staying in a fabulous place, a little oasis in the heart of the French Quarter, which one might be forgiven for thinking was a bit extravagant, but Matt knows the GM and we got an amazing deal. Interesting history behind it. It was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, best known for creating the Italianate village of Portmeirion in Wales, itself best known as the setting for the 60s TV series The Prisoner. Apparently he designed several buildings in China in the 20s.
