text: Kotsenyu was a cheerful village and as we wandered round looking at the houses, everyone followed behind in a great horde. Mothers held up their babies to look at us, boys (49) pressed close behind, only to rush away if we turned round, girls giggled and hid their faces in their cloths and old women, with the confidence of age, made eyes at Bill.
