A large group plays the children's game rong ran (dragon-snake). In One person sits on a small hill or some location above the other players; he or she acts as the doctor. The other children stand in a line, holding each other's belts to form the body of the dragon-snake. Rong ran   The dragon-snake approaches the doctor. The following dialogue occurs between the doctor and the head of the line: - Where are you going, dragon-snake? - I’m searching for medicine for my son. - How old is he, your son? - He is one year old. - The doctor is not well. - He is (two, three, four, five... repeated each time) years old. - The doctor is not well. The dialogue continues until the dragon-snake says: - He is ten years old. Then the doctor answers: - All right, the doctor is well. With this, the doctor stands up and says: - Give me your head - Nothing but the bones Responds the dragon-snake - Give me the body. - Nothing but the blood. - Give me the tail. - Pursue at will! At this, the doctor flies into a rage and attempts lo catch the child who represents the tail of the dragon-snake. The head of the line stretches his or her arms to bar the doctor while the dragon-snake tries to make a circle. If the dragon-snake succeeds in rolling into a circle before the physician can touch the tail, it wins. On the contrary, if the doctor catches the tail of the dragon-snake, the entire group loses the game. All losers must stretch out their hands, palms downwards, to the winner, who slaps them one after another. travel to vietnam
