text: At this opportunity I also find out that the Ang daughters (122) of Oting too may marry into Nganting, Zakkho and some other villages beyond the border (compare p. 104) but that they do not like to do so because of the distance which means two days travelling they like to come back to their village for feasts and also want to be available in case of illness or death of their parents.
