In the photographer's words: "On Lake Malawi, a dugout canoe is the primary form of transportation other than walking. Fish are the only source of protein in the Malawi diet. It is no surprise that the lake if full of dugout canoes during the day. This child decided to take a break from fishing to examine something. Later, he attempted to show me how to balance on the canoe so I could paddle it. I would like to blame the language barrier, but I really just didn't have the balance that was required."
