  playing with recycled tools
by call_me_rhia

Kenyan people at great at recycling things and making use of them. My fondest memory in this sense is these two men playing "dama", or whatever way they call it locally or in English, at a local craft-centre.. They had drawn the board on an old table and then used painted drink caps as pawns. Absolutely "genial". Other recycled items I saw were shoes made out of used cars' tyres and several toys from pop cans.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
