text: I have to drink madhu in the gaonburas' houses as well and I was slightly tipsy when I finally started on my way home. It was not so very hot and during the afternoon I arrived safely back in Sumniching. Threatening clouds started to gather after some time, but after a shower of a few minutes duration it all cleared up again.
