text: (188) I tried to make some household lists without Ahon but was not successful, however he soon joined me and I could start to make a list of inhabitants of this side of the village as well. In Ahon's house there are even fifteen people. His two wives, the first one of whom is childless, are true cousins. Their fathers are brothers and their mothers sisters.
