text: To my surprise three Aos showed up this morning, two of which wanted to work for me as a cook. One has been sent by Mr Blah, the other came along in the hope that my choice would fall on him. I took the former whose name is [] and who seems to be quite nice. In any case I prefer him to the morose Tsampio.
