text: Today I left Kohima for the Eastern Angamis. We began by skirting the village and went slowly down to a stony river. We rose quickly up the further hill and on the crest reached Chakhabama.
text: The bungalow has walls of mud and lathe and badly gaping holes. There is every sort of furniture except a bed. Sat in the sun and let the view soak in while the jeep went back to Kohima. (24)
