These lovely women are carring new thatch on their heads to build new roofs on their homes.  It is hard to imagine such self sufficiency, but then it is a simpler process than the asphalt shingle roofs most of us have.  But women, being women, are doing this together.  I can just hear them,  “Hodi, shall we go and gather thatch to do our roofs”?  Chatting all through the process.  Women friends here sew together, shop, play cards, walk, walk their children, or dogs. There, they are building their roofs.
