Shangri La

definition: A remote paradise place on earth.

What a great way to start a vacation then to visit Doris Duke's home in Hawaii known as "Shangri La". Doris Duke was once known as the richest little girl in the world. If you want to read a bit about her: http://www.biography.com/articles/Doris-Duke-9542083. She had built a beautiful home on Oahu.

Her pool and playhouse
Living room with glass walls that retract into the ground
Her own harbor
We couldn't take any pictures inside the home, but it was beautiful!

So, needless to say, we're back in our paradise on earth, Hawaii. We couldn't wait to eat at some of our favorite places again.
Our favorite restaurant for Ramen
Yum...Malasada!
Hope you're having a great summer!
