This post is way more interesting with the video! 😊
This lovely lady walked back from the farm with me yesterday… All 6km (uphill almost all the way) and with a baby on her back and about 30kg (maybe more?) of firewood on her head. What a legend!
Meanwhile I struggled up the hill pushing my bike with a few sticks of sugar cane and a backpack weighing about 5kg. Between that trip and 5 hours harvesting I was exhausted. I fell into bed, hands sore, covered in a nasty rash – a reaction to the maize, sleepy from the phenergyn. It was so much fun but boy I’m glad I don’t have to do that day in and day out. These women are crazy strong!!!
