Back in Cambodia, I was amazed at what the locals could carry on their motorbikes.

As we traveled through India and Nepal, my amazement shifted to what they could carry on their heads.

Call me crazy, but I’d rather support a heavy load with the trunk of my body than my forehead, though I noticed that a small minority of haulers use backpack-style straps in addition to their noggins.

Which balancing act do you find most impressive? Click on a photo to see it full size.

You won’t be seeing us carrying our bags like this the next time we go to a train station. Leave that to the porters.

P.S. Sorry for using the most obvious title possible for this post, but really, how could I resist?
