text: To "Lakema" - Pelekemi - wading in the rain among the leeches. I think a short cut could be made where the Naga path called Dunglo lampe leaves the bridle path, cutting off the whole of the Ridima loop. It looks on the map as if half a mile of road could be substituted for two miles, and it would obviate the recurrent trouble of cattle on the path by Ridima village.
