text: (111) Merangkong 19/7/1936. It was just pouring with rain early in the morning but around 8 o'clock the rain had stopped and we went through the village following the natural rocks through the lanes of Chantongia where remarkably many people were sitting idly in front of their houses. Nlamo had to remind me that this was Sunday and that these people are christians.
