He Ain't Heavy...Carrying again


As the mother of small children in Canada in the early 80's I got used to the idea that sometimes strollers and prams just didn't work, so visiting Egypt and having to find a way to schlep kids around Cairo didn't come as too great a shock. The sidewalks are much, much better now than they were when I first began visiting, but there are no wheel-friendly ramps most place that you go. I solved my problems way back when with a back pack with a little jump seat for my daughter when she got tired. But I've always had a sneaking admiration for the way that many of the women here just perch one of the offspring on a shoulder and mosey on down the road.

Great photo. The child looks as if he is quite accustomed to this position. Love the smile on the mother's face. :)

Wow, she is one big lady. I just checked the enlarged view and the lady in front of her holding the boy's hand seems normal sized. The tall one seems to be smiling just for you. Nice photograph.

I hope you can come and learn about my being able to finally fly.
