Mandy, one of the employees at the Countryside Café, wanted to practice her English with me, so she sat down and asked me questions about my family and job. She was very sweet and tried hard to make herself understood. Everytime I walked by the Countryside Café during the rest of my stay in Yangshuo she'd come out of the restaurant and encourage me to come back and eat more.
