text: Although I promise Castles a head-hunters dance in Borjan, they make the genna today, he remained firm about his plan about spending Christmas day at the Dikhu, and I was eventually grateful to him as this way the day was distinguished from the large number of working days, and looking back on it it will remain a special and delightful event.
