text: (91) The gate in the bamboo fence is overshadowed by a gabled roof which is supported by two posts on the inside in the village. Near the gate a morung stands on a hill and next to it a drum house with a huge hollow slit-gong. We stayed in the morung only a few minutes and then went on to the Ang's house, a long building in the village centre, the high interior of which is divided into numerous small rooms.
