For Sale

As we traveled the main roads, it was common to see sights such as this.  The bags are full of salt and are for sale.  We saw bundles of sugar cane, buckets of carrots and potatoes, bundles of branches and sometimes building materials.  It was also fairly common to see a small garden right by the side of the road.  They seemed to be tended mostly by women, though sometimes men could be spotted doing some of the labor, too.  The women bent straight from the waist to do the work and I said "ouch."  Despite the work and the mud, most women were in dresses or skirts and the clothing seemed to be immaculate.  Even the whites appeared bright and spotless.  I could would like to know their secret.
