text: In the morning too it looked as though it would rain but when we had taken down my tent by nine o'clock and left, the sun stood high in the sky with only a few fluffy white cumuli clouds moving quickly across. The gaonbura of Sumniching was hardly sad about our departure. In such a small village supplying a camp with water and firewood is a strain.
