text: In the evening we first talked to the gaonburas and then visited a group of boys and girls in the Ang's house. They flirt and sing together, having dressed up, after returning from the fields. In the huge long hall of the Ang's house, there are separate semi-circular cabins with a bed for a couple, - and these are used by lovers, - rather like the granaries - Wakching.
