Walking around at night in a peaceful friendly atmosphere, family groups were eating, children playing with simple
handmade toys, no quarrelling or loud noise to disturb the peace. In the night markets shops selling paper money
and paper replicas of important items for the ancestors, ready to be burnt as offerings at the family shrine. After a
couple of weeks we became recognised and acknowledged, our hotel knew where we had been each day and told us
on our return!
