human power in Kimana, Kenya

This fellow is pushing 20, 20 litre water containers, which he bailed himself. In addition to the cart weight, this is 400 litres, or 400 kilograms, or about 880 pounds of water.

Here is a machete blade sharpener, hacked from a bike. I like the re-purposed car tire seat. They also hack bikes to power bellows for welding (like to fix other bikes):

Lots of people moving themselves and stuff around by bike:

I was reminded of the Netherlands. Even Masaai in their regal traditional clothing are seen on bikes.
