text: It is sunny again today but very cool. In the morning I went through the village to see what was new. Apparently not much has happened. Now is the time for making repairs. The people repair their granaries and build new ones. Everywhere one sees new fences around gardens and banana trees and preparations are made to rebuild a few houses.
