A Nice Day with MaryAnn Lee and Family

A couple of weeks ago, I had my first visit with MaryAnn Lee and her family. MaryAnn and I worked together at Telcordia (Bellcore) many years ago. When Dow Chemical transferred her husband Peter from New Jersey to Shanghai about 18 months ago, I wished her well on her departure from Telcordia. So I knew that she and her family were here and she graciously arranged to have her entire family pick me up (in their company car) and spend a nice afternoon together. Not only was the lunch absolutely delicious (best dumplings I’ve ever had) but I also got to see one of my top sightseeing priorities, the Shanghai World Financial Center, which vies for the title “tallest building in the world” and which had only been only open for 2 weeks at the time of our visit. And it was a delight meeting MaryAnn’s family – Peter is a very nice, laid-back guy, Jonathan a delightful second-grader (the age-group I relate to best), and the two teenage daughters, Kimberly and Andrea, lovely young ladies who may look Chinese but are so American in their speech and behavior that they made me homesick 🙂
