    The women, mostly elderly ones, also we spotted a few young girls, have tattooed faces with very different patterns. There are 5 different ways of putting the tattoos on: dots, spider, lines, curls, almost black.
    We continue walking around the village about 1,5 hours. The Chins are mostly Christians with a variety of all beliefs from Methodists to Catholics. In each village we will see houses decorated with buffalo corns. These are from animals called Mithan a cross between a domestic cow and a wild Gaur. Each time such an animal is slaughtered a kind of wooden pillar decorated with all sort of ornaments is erected in front of the house. In addition, a stone table which is also used as cover for urns is placed nearby. Picnic lunch served on the way. Have dinner at local restaurant or at hotel.
