text: A huge crowd was waiting at the camp - mainly to look at me, the interpreters said. Some girls from Chimongre, a village eight miles away which Bill had visited in April were amongst the crowd. Bill had taken photos of them dancing and when he gave them some prints there was great excitement - men, women and children all crowding round to identify their friends.
