Notes:
Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania - It was interesting to see that the porters preferred to carry heavy loads on their heads. Even if you give them a backpack with shoulder straps, they would lay the bag on the top of their heads. It must work for them though because they manage to climb incredibly well.
