text: At five o'clock in thick fog we finally arrived at the bungalow which is past the village. It is a good one with a big verandah, two huge rooms and a bathroom. From the verandah one looks over the tribal area far away to the mountains at the Burma border. On the other side, over the entire Brahmaputra valley. Several Konyaks came to greet us. They seemed very nice.
