text: From early on a storm blew around my bungalow and during the morning it was pouring with rain for a while. The landscape looked grey and desolate but after a few hours the wind had wiped away all clouds and the mountains beyond the border were lying ahead more clearly visible than they had been for a long time. One could recognise precisely villages like Choha and the long ridge of Chen.
