text: In front of the field hut now a sun roof had been set up across several bamboo poles and underneath it the old men enjoyed tea and madhu. I did not see them do any work worth mentioning but maybe their turn comes in the afternoon and certainly they were going to carry home their share of rice. Not much happened in the afternoon as I prepared my walk to Borjan.
