This is an image of a porter in the Inca Trail.  While we tourists using the latest and greatest gear need help carrying our stuff, they walk and run the mountains of Peru in sandals made out of discarded car tires.  ..Over the past few years its been regimented how much load they can carry.  Before they would be truly used as 'human mules' sometimes carrying well over 60 kilos in the worst imaginable conditions.
