text: In the afternoon we went to Kepalo, on the top of the hill above Hosaichak. It is a colony of Hosaichak, but much more attractively situated. One of the morungs was recently built and is very fine. The erection of the major posts must be quite a feat. For this work, men from neighbouring villages come to help.
