text: Towards evening I sat in the Ang's house and took notes. The customs of Hungphoi seem to differ only in details from those of Oting and Wangla. In the evening the young men of the other morung sang in front of the Ang house and then in one of the three girls' 'morungs' which are in the house. The sandflies are especially bad tonight.
