text: At six o'clock it was raining slightly but when we finally started after seven it had stopped and soon even the sun came out. Tsampio rushed ahead as he goes on to Kohima for a few days. Nlamo and I also walked quickly but still needed one and three quarter hours to the branching off towards the Dikhu bungalow. The way up to Kongan was very hot but at least nothing compared to the heat in July when I was here with Mills.
