Since arriving in Bali, I have yet to cease to be fascinated with the carrying method of choice here: the human head.
A basket full of offerings or a large bundle of twigs or plant matter is a common sight. However, even small and precarious items that one would think might be easier to simply carry by hand, like the cutting tool used to harvest rice, finds its place balanced ever so delicately down the centre of one’s head, the curved blade following the round shape atop its carrier.
My favorite sighting to date though would have to be the motorcyclist riding one-handed as he balanced a whole suckling pig or babi guling, one of Bali’s most famed dishes, through the streets of Ubud.
What unusual or interesting things have you seen being transported in this way?
