text: Yesterday the Tamlu dobashi, Niam-pong, came to accompany me on this tour. As Castle uses the railway time which is one full hour behind local time I could not start off too early. Furthermore the morning brought a small disappointment as the sky was covered with a grey blanket of clouds for the first time in many days. In addition it was quite humid already in the morning.
