A few days before PETER returned from his first releif raid to Sindupalchok

After early morning tea we set off. The devastation was similar to that which we seen on the Tipni road 3 days earlier. Virtually every house was a pile of stones or dangerously uninhabitable. And then a road block, trees laid across the road blocked our passage.

Villagers were hungry, frightened. They weren’t inclined to sit and watch two trucks laden with rice, pass them by. Local boys suggested “Let’s take the rice!” Hands slipping under the truck tarpaulins. But there was no violence, no stealing and we were able to proceed.
