    Not too heavy a burden one hopes? The adverts (?) at the side of the road are interesting.

    • He is carrying dead, and by now dry, coconut leaves. They make excellent kindling wood, I believe, and are more unwieldy than heavy.
      The advertisements look to be posters for Malayalam movies!

    • As always, more matter of luck than judgement! It was only when downloading the picture that I noticed those interesting patterns of palm tree shadows..
