“Nothing ever becomes real 'til it is experienced.” ― John Keats

Welcome to this weeks entry of "Sisterhood Stories," a blog circle, of an international group of photographers, sharing friendship, stories and imagery. 

This week, I wanted to share about a behind the scenes tour of The Langham Hotel in Pasadena, CA.   My daughter's Girl Scout troop had the privilege of touring this hotel, and being introduced to what it takes to run such a large hotel.

The hotel was beautiful and the workers let us know how they take care of the laundry, things that might break and need a handy man, plus a guided tour of the kitchen with the chef. 

I find it so wonderful how accommodating people are to Girl Scouts.  I often wonder what the girls are learning, and ponder what door a new experience might open for a child.  We noticed an interesting quote on the handyman board during the question and answer process.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life,mind your own business and work hard with your hands.

 We ended the tour with a spectacular chocolaty tea party.  Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they had a chocolate fountain with white chocolate, tinted pink.  There were so many goodies, and the girls earned a badge for using their social graces.  

It felt like a real life sisterhood journey, having tea and enjoying this opportunity with the girls.  Thank you for stopping by and please visit my sister in photography Aziza Alghunaim, of Little Twinkles.
