Takhet is a Naga village inside the Hukaung Tiger Reserve of Myanmar.  I spent a couple of days here in late May doing some community forestry work, and had a very nice lunch in this house. Couple of points. First, note the firebox sitting on top of the bamboo floor. Second, the Naga family that lives here was out working in their rice field the day we dropped by to make lunch. The village head said, "No problem, make yourself at home". We did.  [NOTE: We met the family later that evening and they were very gracious.  No problem, indeed. And yes, the firebox eventually will burn through the floor.]
