I took this photo during my parents' visit to Malawi on Jan. 2, 2007. A previous Peace Corps volunteer at my site had taught this store owner to play Scrabble and left him this board when he finished his service. He was very good at the game when I arrived. They had mastered the strategy in addition to learning lots of obscure English words. I used to go and play with him and a few other community members once or twice a week.
