Travel Pics: Head Carrying in Africa
Mother and daughter walking home from the market in Maputo, Mozambique with tins of Lion Lager on their head.
It is not uncommon to see women carrying things on their head in Africa, but this candid street scene shows the first time I saw a little girl help her mother take the beer home, presumably for her father.
Usually the children carry water, or firewood to their destination.
Once this little girl gets better at carrying loads on her head, she will no doubt be able to walk upright with her hands free like mum.
