In Africa, always room for improvisation

I found this picture somewhere in a forgotten drawer of my old computer. I tells me a lot about African mentality; there is always room for improvisation. And sometimes, when means are scarce, you have to push your possibilities to the absolute maximum. Or even further, as this photo suggests;

It is not a rare sight here to see a guy on a bicycle with over 50 chickens tied to the frame upside down. Or see a woman walking while carrying at least 20 jerry cans with her. When the transportation options are not that varied, you can better fully utilise what you have.

Although the people in this picture still seem to be pretty ok with the situation, I feel very sorry for that poor truck! I would like to give credits to the photographer that took this picture, but unfortunately I don’t know who shot this.
