  1. Love their colorful clothing and awed by how they carry themselves, their posture so erect. Necessary of course in order to carry such loads on their heads. I wonder if they get severe headaches and pains in their necks.

    1. This is centuries old traditional way of carrying loads on their heads. They use what is called “oja” a piece of cloth wrapped in a circle between their head and the load, this acts like a form of cushion or shock absorber. Then you have the Gwari’s who carry load on their neck/shoulder.

    2. Correction the piece of cloth is called Osuka and not Oja, Oja is mostly used by a woman to secure her baby while carrying her baby on her back, Wow used “her” 3 times in one sentence.
