text: After a cup of coffee we set out for the village. The path down to the saddle is now lined with buildings and huts, and there are masts for electric lines. But the sky-line of the village with the Thepong morung prominent seemed little changed. We took the path to that morung, and I found myself climbing over the same stone steps I had climbed so often.
