Hauling Water



Nomad Week continues here at OPOD with this picture of a young boy carrying water. The picture is from Uganda, and was taken in 1936. This is still a common site in Africa, as many people have to walk for miles to get to the nearest water.

  1. I lived in Liberia for a few years, and the sight of women walking to market with their produce on their heads, or walking down to the waterside to bring home water was common. It was amazing, too! Kids learned early how to do it, although by the time they were grown (that is, by about twelve years old), the boys and men carried mostly their machetes this way.
