text: Not much is happening in the village. (188) The Angban boys are bringing the pigs' heads to the house of Yonglong, the Niengba, in fact to the house he's actually living in, not to the original house of his family. (See p. 176). The ceremony is the same as on the day when the Aukheang celebrated its feast. (Compare pp. 176-177).
