text: To Baimho by the Tizu Valley where we inspected the new terraces. This part of the Sema country is at last beginning to be terraced appreciably, and the villages that have terraces are infinitely better off than their neighbours. In Baimho individuals who have no terraces consider themselves very unfortunate. There are only about a score, but they have no suitable land.
