text: So Pangsha is counting on catching us unawares, and when we hear far-away calls and make out the figures of three men with a conspicuously white goat, we are very much on our guard. They are coming towards us over the open hillside, but we do not in the least trust the peace that the goat appears to offer. Carefully we sweep the valley with our field glasses.
