text: March of 4 or 5 miles, but still felt a bit off colour. Was met about a mile from village by Khullakpa; I didn't recognise him as Meraipung, and as we'd heard a story (which I doubted) that Gimmy was at Tuinem, I thought it might be someone else; but when I got him to his photo, there he was.
