text: It went on this way via the Ang-ban to the Aukheang and they had not yet left that dancing place when the Bala people already were pushing on and were only waiting to take their turn on the place. Now the Thepong men had completed their tour and they returned to their own morung, but as soon as the Bala people had moved on the Aukheang dancers stepped onto the place and they themselves moved from Aukheang to Ang-ban and Balang and from there to Bala and Thepong.
