Throughout the city of Kathmandu, I saw people carrying objects with their heads. The objects were either on their heads or were supported on their backs with a strap across the forehead connected to the objects ensuring stability. I admired their strength and balance under what seemed to be some very heavy loads. No wonder they make great Sherpas for the climbers in the Himalayas. I saw this man and many other men and women in one of the market areas near the ancient temples..
