text: I started off from Punkhung around eight o'clock in unbelievably beautiful weather. The short and painless walk to Tanhai led through old jhum land. In Tanhai I was greeted by the gaonburas. I sat for some minutes in a morung. The Ang's house is genna as three days ago one of the women has had a child.
