Hair care

For our first year here, Trevor cut his own hair. After the clippers at the PC house broke about a month ago, he was starting to get pretty shaggy. That's when he decided to try one of the local barbers.

He rode into a neighborhood he wanted to explore and picked the first place that looked open. From a poster on the wall, he chose an illustration of a haircut labeled "The Potato" and paid 2,000 kwacha (about 20 cents) to have his head shaved nearly smooth.

When he returned for a follow-up today, the barber said he had been expecting him. He knew the exact day Trevor had first appeared. Next time, the barber wants me to come for a trim too. Maybe, but I'm not getting The Potato.
