text: At one o'clock we started out from Kongan. The sky had become cloudy. It was oppressively hot. Around three it started to pour and the rain continued for about three quarters of an hour, but I didn't get very wet under my umbrella. When we arrived here at five, Wakching once again was in the clouds.
