text: Shiong would be suitable for anthropological work. It is easy to survey and not too big. The number of houses barely approaches 50 and furthermore Ahon lives here who of all the dobashis and gaonburas here is by far the most intelligent. He expected us in his house and we went first to the Wang-hem-ba morung where I started making lists of inhabitants of the nearby houses.
