text: Early in the morning Shankok came to the bungalow and wanted to go to Chingtang with me where ceremonies are held as well for the piece of head received from me but as I am leaving tomorrow and still have much to do I decided to give the feast in Chingtang a miss. Shankok did not want to go by himself and he suggested to go hunting as there were many small hornbill birds (donesh) near Wakching. So we went off in the direction towards Wanching.
