text: Everyone is working in the fields and not much is happening in the village. There was not a single genna during my entire absence. It already is noticeably warmer in Wakching and we can eat on the verandah. Yesterday I forgot to mention a dream which Chingai had told me. During the last night in Punkhung he dreamt that he went to war against an enemy village all by himself but although he saw some enemies there was no battle.
