text: Arrived on top, the village looked a little different. Houses seem to have crept nearer to the morung and the dance place in front seemed reduced. The morung still contains some of the old carvings, but the general condition is poor, the roof leaking badly. Apparently the morung will be repaired this October, not a day too early!
