«Its western summit is called the Masai “Ngàje Ngài”, the House of God. Close to the western summit there is the dried and frozen carcass of a leopard. No one has explained what the leopard was seeking at that altitude». – Ernest Hemingway, The Snows of Kilimanjaro.

Southern Butovo
As Bhutan
Like the frozen Ngàje-Ngài
Hardly to be back again,
To returne to the home
