What can a man transport on a bicycle. We take about 10 kg for two weeks travelling but a local here can take 200kg bananas or 200 liters milk.

Hello Gerrit - This is such a good DL shot. The scene is full of the hustle and bustle of travel and transport. The atmosphere is palpable. Excellent composition and wonderful detail. The more I look the more I see. The bicycle is the life blood of so many African countries and these old bones shakers are perfect transport for goods and services. Marvellous. Warm regards rosemary

It's nice to see a daily life scene from Rwanda. I like all of the action; there are so many people and vehicles in this one frame. The earthy-colored roads are always interesting to see, even though they must turn very muddy when it rains.

Hi Gerrit, Very interesting view of this busy street. Amazing that the bike can transport all these burden. Not often we see the photos from Rwanda, thanks for sharing.

Vroeger moesten we ook meer vervoeren met de fiets dan tegenwoordig, maar deze mensen gebruikern hun fiets as boomezel, en allemaal zonder versnellingen, alleen spierkracht is van tel.
Uw foto toont zeer mooi hoe het er aan toegaat, uw 10kg bagage is maar een peulschil voor deze fietsers.
Prachtig beeld mooi samengesteld. Bedankt.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

I like these third world transportation artists, on Bycicles, scooters, carts....and their ability for balance.
A good and busy street scene with the main subject, well catched in the foreground.
