text: Today it was raining with short interruptions, from morning to night, and most of the time we were engulfed in clouds which were so thick that one could not see for fifty metres. Fortunately I took the for me most important photograph yesterday as I really have had bad luck concerning Wangla. The film from my first tour was spoiled and now the weather is dreadful.
