The family we live with has a live in maid. I'm unsure of all her duties, but I know that she cooks for us. She sleeps on a mat on the living room floor and wakes up around 5:00 am to start working. She can be seen during the day sitting in a tiny room off the kitchen. Sometimes I see her eating by herself in there. Jonathan and I both wish she would eat with us. Although we can't converse with her because she doesn't speak English, she seems very nice and I try to smile at her to show my appreciation. I feel a bit uncomfortable having servants. There is also a girl that cleans our room. It seems like it is cleaned every time we leave, even up to 3 times a day.
