Monopoly and Scrabble in Senegal
I noticed that downtown there were a lot of people that were selling board games. The two most popular were Monopoly and Scrabble. Knowing that Monopoly was a very popular game in the United States as well, and that were so many versions of it, I was thinking about buying a board game while I was there. Not too many people have the Senegalese/French version of Monopoly. I pondered to Farina hypothetically, "I wonder if there is any good place around here where I could get a good deal on Monopoly."
She said to me that she didn't know. I thought about it again, and felt kind of silly, because I already knew the answer. I told her, "No where of course."
