Last week, our ayi returned from a week off for the New Year. She had gone home to her village to see her children and family. She hails from a small village in the Anhui province, a few hours from here. From what I understand, she does not get to see her family very frequently because she has to work.
We missed her while she was away.
She has become such a part of our day to day lives.
When she returned last Monday, she came bearing gifts.
She handed me a shoe box.
Shoes? Oh this ought to be good.
Inside the shoebox, I was surprised to find about 2 dozen farm fresh eggs padded with hay.
What a treat!
Do I really have to share?
