text: But as I moved through the street leading to Shankok's house nothing seemed changed. The houses were exactly the same and so were the children and the women on the high verandahs. An old woman looked at me with curiousity and when asked whether she remembered me broke out into a broad smile and said that she had often seen me in the village and walking about with Shankok.
