I remmember my mother carrying everything heavy goods and water, firewood on her head. We never knew it differently as children. In the village where we did heavy work, most seemed logical and comfortable as that was our part of lifestyle. Which is the main reason why people in #Europe especially #Netherlands and around Europe where I have ever travelled and continued to carry my own children at my back and goods or groceries on my head. All not heavy because if this posture thing I really believe in. When I started #babycarryworkout, I never had to doubt the thoughts that every human being needs to practice this natural part of culture.
Of course and once again a lot changed as #Africans and a lot of ancient people were forced to stop believing in their own culture. This has killed the mentality of the new generation unfortunately, such that some will end up even arguing on this trying to convince you differently. But this Zimbabwean mom, grandma is another brilliant proof that does not need to show you any form of research from any Westernized education.
Before I go any further, #culture is to be practiced or ignored due to who and how people are influenced by which society.
African ethnic carrying culture is and focuses on times before queen #Elizabeth introduced a pram. Life started changing and that life before then is what we are trying to encourage every human being to practice.
The woman in the picture is a #Zimbabwean, who didn’t had 50 cents to catch transport to reach the area where the goods were being gathered for the victims of #cycloneidai. Very sad indeed and at the same time very realistic to people who practice this healthy #carrying lifestyle.
This is beyond reality. This is the future reality when nature starts taking its course. We humans are part of nature. The friendly we are to nature the longer we survive. But we have to listen to what nature needs and expects from us.
Think of the day without electricity, day when nature destroys roads and cars. If you survive this. You need to travel from one place to another.
