text: Next we came to the forest settlement of Tijit, consisting (51) of office buildings and houses. There most people seemed non-tribal, but on the road were groups of unmistakable Konyaks. They looked exactly the same as 34 years ago. Narrow belts, tattooed faces, chewing betel and carrying baskets and palm leaves as umbrellas.
