So you think your job is tough?

I have said it before, I will say it again.

Next time I'll think my job is difficult and tiring, I'll force myself to reconsider.

If I won't be able to, I'll open up this photograph and look closely at the porter, carrying this huge cistern up the steep hill for only god knows how many days. The letters on the cistern say: "Extra heavy quality".

One more fact - each year, more cargo is transported by porters than by any other means of "transport" in Nepal.
