      Diste xeito loita o montañés contra o frío. A humidade non penetra no interior gracias ó tellado, e a que podería filtrarse por baixo das paredes evitase faguendo d'arredor, pola parte de fóra, uns regos, chamados vielas, que recollen as augas do tellado e as que corren pola terra e léva-nas lonxe
      In this way highlanders fight the cold. Wetness doesn't come inside thanks to the thatched roof, and what could come under the walls is prevented by working all around, in the outside, some ditches called vielas, which take the waters of the roof and the overflow and run them away
