Dear Shaded Viewers,

Tonight I met Laura Albert and her fiance, Donald and Katia Kulawick at the Shangri-La. We met for dinner but first got a tour of the hotel.

Laura ALbert

Laura and I went for a tour of the hotel while Katia and Donald relaxed in one of the many sitting rooms. Katia knows the hotel by heart as it is her 'canteen' for breakfast meetings.

Laura on the bed
Laura  decided to check out the bed in the only room that was not rented out. It was a small suite on the top floor that rents for 12,000 EUROS a night.

The terrace
The room has a lovely terrace where you could have your breakfast with a beautiful view of all of Paris.

Egyptian bar
Before rejoining Katia and Donald for dinner we checked out the Egyptian inspired bar.
