  2. The first line on the brown broad really say “Natural war route” instead of “Study tour route”As to the arrow indicating the North Pole I have no idea of it. When I was young I sometimes visited my uncle in Nachuak and stayed at his home in the town for many days. In those days we did not know about this kind of crabs;we only enjoyed collecting crabs of a wide varieties during rainy seasons.We cleaned them and eat the young ones raw with very hot somtam. The rest of them we put in an earth jar and preserved them with salty boiled water to later use as an important ingredient of somtam. Take note that at that time we neither had chemical fertilizers nor polluted environment.
