Two men are standing next to a windbreak made from millet stalks, where men sleep on ashes next to a fire. They are possibly in conversation with some others within it, since its opening would face the cattle, who can be seen beyond with tethering pegs. This camp may be an early dry season camp (wec jiom) established in late November or early December by male youths and girls. As the dry season progressed, larger cattle camps with a greater population density would be formed. This camp may well be one on the Nyanding River or Yakwach camp on the Sobat.
