text: Camp Sangpurr 6/12/1936
text: Last night heavy clouds rose in the north and for today we actually were expecting rain, but after an overcast morning the day still turned out well although it was not as cloudless as it had been of late. The trek to Sangpurr where a good camp had already been set up took not quite five hours and was totally uneventful. (36) The people of Panso were apparently still all so drunk that no one came to bid us farewell.
