Things Rwandans carry on their heads:

While in Rwanda recently, we were amazed by many things …  including how far people would walk every day and the sorts of things they could balance on their heads (without help from their hands!) while on the journey. Here are the top 10 things we saw:

10. A sack of sweet potatoes

9. An upright milk bottle

8. A long plank of wood

7. Pile of folded bed sheets

6. A banana tree trunk … which is pretty huge

5. A wheeled suitcase

4. An open and full water tub… no spills!

3. A wooden door

2. A garden hoe…. the center of gravity a long way down the pole

1. Backpack – with shoulder straps hanging beside their ears making the carrier look a bit like an elephant
