text: A good way away from the village I am expected by the Ang and the gaonburas. The former is an insignificant looking young man who is also not treated differently by the others so that it took me some time to discover who he was. The rice has been harvested here for the most part a long time ago and on the fields lush weeds thrive in between the taro. Only on one field there is a bit of rice left.
