Women carrying home the catch

The women of Madagascar practice carrying heavy things on their heads from an early age, leaving their hands free while walking. These ladies collected fish from the incoming fishing boats, taking some home for dinner, and some for selling. Individual fish is simply piled on the head and carried off with no fuss.
