The staff at Schumacher China have been very hospitable. This week I was invited to eat with the Engineering Manager’s family. He has a lovely wife and beautiful 8-year old daughter. His mother is staying with them for a month. They own a very modest two story condo, which is more like an apartment. Very sparse furniture. The couch is wooden with no cushion. I ate with them twice this week. As is the custom, they filled the table with food, all the while apologizing for not having much to serve me. The kitchen was ¼ the size of mine, and the living room was also the garage for their motor scooter! I took turns with their daughter playing the electronic piano.
The master bedroom is also the study and the music room.
