Woman with Baby and Greens

 

Women are the primary care givers for kids here and carry their babies with them to do housework, to go shopping or, like this woman, while they sell items in the market. In addition to the stalls in the market, lots of people carry items (mostly on their heads) to sell. A head nod is usually enough to get them to stop and sell you whatever it is they have. I don’t know the name of the plant that she is selling but it is used as a traditional medicine to treat upset stomachs. The leaves are soaked in hot water and the ensuing tea drunk.
