наурыз мейрамы құтты болсын motherfuckers!

More Toghiz Qumalaq players

three years ago today, the man in this picture tried to teach me how to play the mancala-style game sitting on the table in front of him. through trial and error (we had no languages in common), i mostly figured out the rules of the game that i later learned was called "nine pieces of sheep shit."

what a long strange trip it's been. happy nauryz (or however you want to spell it)!
