text: I first take a bath in rather brown but well warmed water and then accompany the Ang into his house. The Oting dobashi Chingai now in the meantime also has arrived and turns out to be quite needed as none of the Punkhung men speak good Assamese. In the darkness I could not see much of the house despite my torch. It is very big and I want to describe it tomorrow.
