Accra woman carrying goods

Aside from the colorful car and roadside advertising,
 the woman carrying that load is full of strength, balance and grace!
While driving around with the real estate agent today, we had our first opportunity to see up close how the people, mostly ladies, carry big and heavy objects on their heads: we noticed that they wrap a cloth around into a ring and use it to anchor the goods, especially when they are held in a big bowl.  I just love how bulky & heavy loads are being carried to sell goods.  I'm in awe of it because i know it must be a difficult skill to acquire.  There is such beauty in the simple things of life...
