text: But soon it starts to rain more heavily and first the men and then the girls too seek the shelter of the houses. The latter, who had resisted the rain for a surprisingly long time, stepped back under the roof of the Ang's house. A real cloudburst accompanied by hail comes down and soon the dancing place is like a swamp.
