text: We got up today while it was still dark and had breakfast at six. It was not a nice morning and it even rained for a few minutes. Soon, however, the clouds moved away and the day turned pleasant and warm. At eight o'clock was departure time but already some time before the coolies had been set up in groups along the way to avoid confusion. All went smoothly and we started in time.
