back at home, at least temporarily

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

I’ve been away on a work trip to Zimbabwe, my apologies for the silence. It’s not going to get better very soon, as it’s going to be busy a while longer. But for now, a list of the things I have seen Zimbabwean women carrying on their heads. No hands. It is amazing and awesome and I am envious of this skill.

large sack of grain
small grocery sack tied into parcel
crate of tomatoes
plastic coke crate filled with stuff
large sack of laundry or soft stuff
large rollaboard
regular suitcase
duffel bag
large plastic tote bag
tall yellow plastic bucket slightly smaller than gatorade cooler
green plastic bucket
cardboard box the size of case of paper towels
