text: To Hoikiya, only about 5 miles but a very steep climb indeed, 3000 ft in the first mile.
text: This village is troubled with badmashes who settle after having made their transfrontier homes too hot for them. I have warned Kavishe of Tsukohomi and Vizhyevi and Yaluvi of Viyekhe that if they give any more trouble I shall turn them out of the district and they can go back whence they came.
text: Just outside Temimi village is a fine species of white mulberry tree with sweet fruit. I have not seen it growing wild in these hills before.
