text: Today was almost entirely dedicated to the preparations for tomorrows departure. Everyone is so busy that I could not get into the village as Williams needs his men and did not want to let me go without an escort but there was enough to do in camp as well. In the morning we hung up the Saochu heads and photographed them from every angle
