Rural Vietnamese, mostly women as mandatory military applied to men above 16, “sat” for hours in a position I could not hold longer than 10 minutes. They sat down and dropped their butts behind their feet but not to the ground, it was a squat. Their torso was vertical with a slight pitch forward. I saw what I would call a bull session last hours with an occasional rise to chase a child but mostly they stayed in this squat.
