These Are My Friends: Mercy

Mercy runs a chemical store (a bit like a pharmacy) across from Kolbugri’s shop where I hang out most of the time. When Trey comes in to town with me she lets him hangout on her shop’s porch and play wari (mancala) with her son Hamad and other kids. She also has a ridiculously adorable daughter named Fatima (hidden on her back in the above photo).
