The Kimironko Market

Kimironko is a fascinating place to be. It overwhelms all the senses - more about this large open air market in a later post, but for now enjoy picture installment #3.

In one picture you will see a women carrying fruit with a bundle on her back. Not only does she have amazing balance and strength to carry the large fruit tray on her head, but add to that a bundle of joy on her back! This is how women carry their babies. Once I saw a 7ish year old with a similar bundle and thought she was mimicking her mom with a babydoll, but she was actually giving mom a break and taking a turn with baby sister!
