Carrying... taking it further


The other day I passed a woman who was actually carrying a stack of things on her head that almost equalled her height. I was without a camera unfortunately. This is probably much healthier for your back than hauling things around with your arms.

A lot of people carry things on their heads but I never see it in this country. I like your photo.

It takes a aterrible toll on one's neck, tho, which many women suffer after many years of this kind of toil!

Amazing balance, wish I could do that.

I have tried to learn how to do that for YEARS! I knew little girls who could carry pails of water that was almost equal to their own weight. I have never seen a man do it though...
Great blog by the way!

Carrying heavy item with such balance is one of the many talents of Egyptian women. They are one of the strongest type of women I have ever met.
