caption: View over the house-tops of Chinlong village, showing the house-posts of newly repaired houses protruding from the thatch. When house-posts decay, the base is cut through, the post drawn through the roof, a new one inserted, and extra thatch added; this saves rebuilding. Konyak, Chinlong village.
