Nagaland now

Just reached Khoima, capital of the state of Nagaland.  This Indian state is located on the border with Myanmar. The people here are the Naga tribes who look just like us.  Totally different from the Indian.  The food also look more Chinese, although the local market sells dog meat and all kinds of insects and worms the Naga people also eat.
 
WIll be here until 5 December so as to attend the annual Hornbill Festival.  On 5 December, I will fly to Kolkata (Calcutta).
 
It is surprisingly cold here.  The city is located on a mountain and is very foggy.  I don't know how Naga warriors could run around half naked in the old days in such cold weather.
