text: After three more miles we reached the high village, Yorobami, where we again visited some gaonburas and where we saw a house which had a painted front, white, red and black. I photographed it. Yorobami lies on extremely steep terrain and in order to get from one house to the other one often has to climb up 10 metres on neck-breaking stone steps.
