People carrying stuff on their heads

I wanted to make a series of photos called People carrying stuff on their heads, but photographing people in Rwanda turned out to be more complicated than I expected. Instead you will have to make do with this one photo and imagine the rest. Other things I saw people balancing on their heads (mostly women, they seem to do the bulk of the heavy lifting) included water containers, bundles of sugar cane, roofing iron, firewood, bananas, rocks, panes of glass, washing baskets, hay bales, sacks of charcoal... I could go on all day.
