text: (90) Longting Improvised seats for Angs.
text: At the Towtok river just across the bridge was a long shed under a tree. To one end was a free place and to the other a small bamboo table about two feet square. Round this table were 5 stone slabs seats made by arranging one long flat stone on two other smaller ones. The Angs of Yansa and Longting had had their lunch here yesterday when down with a party poisoning fish in the river. (91) The village (Longting) though small is spread out for nearly half a mile along the ridge.
