The houses in the village of Tam-an were all built on stilts. Here, the villagers still live in high-floored houses built on stilts. There was a rat guard in the middle of the pillar supporting the high floor, which I don't know if this is the right way to describe it, but it looked like evidence of a genuine high-floored house.

There was an unexpectedly large space under the floor. In Myanmar, where stilt houses are also built, family reunions were held, while here in the Philippines, a shirtless man was threshing with a long wooden stick and a mortar. In this village, threshing still seems to be done by hand.
