text: (93) Wangla 26/2/1937
text: I decided to go to Wangla not until the afternoon so that I could have at least the morning in Hungphoi. Today too Hungphoi kept a holiday, not because of some genna but in order not to miss the spectacle of the white sahib. The men were sitting in front of the morungs and the women and boys stayed around near the Ang's house and my hut.
