text: Sitting in front of my tent I ate a lunch consisting of the contents of some tin cans and then laid down on my bed intending to rest a few minutes, but I ended up sleeping an hour and a half. The oppressive heat is very tiring. Later in the afternoon the gaonburas came and I heard many remarkable things.
