One of these days I was looking at the street in front of Music Crossroads when, suddenly, I see five men with instruments. The bass guitar espesicially called my attention because it reminded me of a video I’d watched on Youtube while I was in Brazil, looking for references about Malawi. I literally jumped up and ran after them to ask where they were going to play. They told me that they could just as well start to play right there, just to earn some money. So, they sat and started to perform. Soon, a lot of people gathered around to watch.
Sitting inside the car, I was trying to registrate the huge quantity of scenes and landscapes on our way to Nkhotakota. The boy watching the road (which was totally empty of cars, except for us) spotted us and pointed at us as I took the photo.
This picture is a part of my photography project about toys and games of the children in Chilinde. On my way back home I saw this boy, Shames, running with this tyre among all the people walking through the street. Smiling – he seemed to be a part of a betting race, and probably he was in the leading position.
The games in our street are disputed. Ananda and I were waiting our turn to jump the rope with the children. Meanwhile, we got to take some pictures with them.
