text: Kikon Lhota was anxious to let me see as much as possible in the limited time laid down by my permit. His original plan was to take me on the first day of my stay to Old Mon, but this visit had to be postponed because the highest-ranking wife of the chief of Mon had given birth to a child, and his house was therefore taboo to any stranger.
