We arrive at Tweety's father house but he isn't home only her uncle. There is no electricity or telephone here.
Tweety yells up towards the mountain and aunt yells back. I guess that is the telephone system here. We run through a corn field and up the side of the mountain to meet her aunt with three children. Have corn on the cob for lunch boiled over their cook fire. Here camping is a way of life. Everyone lives in bamboo framed neepa thatched roof houses. Tweety's uncle says, "He looks so strange. Such a big nose and big eyes like a fish."
