text: (130) Wakching 25/7/1936. Started after nine and rode up the hill on a pony to Kongnyu. Sent it back and together with Nlamo hiked down towards the ridge and then up to the mountain to Wakching. After a while I got so hot that I took off my shirt and after a brief snack I went on with a bare back.
