1) .... a green-and-white kilt (?), a white, short-sleeved shirt and a pair of knee-high socks. He is carrying a very high and heavy log (not trunk) with both hands. His clothes are very impractical for his job (task).
2) There were three of them in the boat: Ishamel, Xury and himself (?) .

3) On the first eight days they had luck with the weather.
The woman is wearing a red flowing sari and is holding a book in her left hand.
4) The boy looks very scruffy. He is wearing a long, baggy two-colour checked shirt and a pair of pointed (?) shoes.
5) He has a long forelock (wisp) which covers his eyes. He is sticking his hands in his pockets.
