Xiao Qi is the daughter of our neighbor. Intelligent, lively bright, always cheerful. Each days she climbs down the chicken ladder in front of her house.
Watching her going down is a spectacle in itself.
We attempt and find hard to keep the balance on single arbor carved with steps, similar to American Native pueblo inhabitants. Remarkable similarities I find in many aspects of life.
Xiao Qi enjoys exploring the world, practicing her English. She uses each opportunity and appears in our hosts home. Her mother seems to be worried as she keeps on peeping in frequently.
She does not know these foreigners who have infiltrated her neighborhood.
