text: On the other side Mr Heefke with whom we were going to spend the weekend was expecting us with his car. He is assistant in the Bihubar Tea Plantation and a nice relaxed person. In his bungalow we were greeted by his blond young wife who has not yet been a year in India. Before the meal we walked through the settlement of the tea plantation's coolies.
