ICHEOKU PHOTOS OF THE WEEK!
Human dexterity knows no bound as shown by the very innovative way these Africans transport their wares to the market. In the picture above left, a woman is seeing pedalling her way to a village market to sell the tray of nuts meticulously balanced on her head; while carrying her child on the back? It is almost magical? Icheoku says, this is a lesson in multi-tasking, indeed!
In this other picture, here right, a man (butcher) is seen riding his motorcycle from the slaughter house to the market to sell his goat-meat. A total of eight (8) fully matured goats, killed and burnt for flavor; are carefully positioned on the motor-cycle, en- route to the meat-market. If this does not qualify as a choreographed event, Icheoku wonders what else? If only some of this ingenuity can be properly harnessed, who says Africa cannot rise from its despondency? To this woman and man of Africa, Icheoku salutes your improvised transportation feat!
