text: I can save myself a description of the village of Wakching at this point as I'm going to become much better acquainted with it later. I spent the afternoon writing. Among others I wrote an article about 'Dimapur: city in the jungle', which will be mailed tomorrow. Most of my luggage I am leaving at the bungalow and am taking only four joppas with me on the tour to Mokokchung.
