While Shaio Ni washed the dishes, laughter and chatter, prayers and prattles, dancing and a good deal of Red Noise could be heard from the front room where a large foreign family had gathered for a weekend retreat. Between all the extensions there were so many children that the housekeeper could not count them all.
The family seemed happy and grateful for this mountain refuge and this made Shaio Ni’s work-load seem lighter. There is nothing more satisfying than contented guests.
