This image captured in Guatemala is a representation of one of those instances when you need a pictures to help you to tell a story. The man on the floor is clearly hurting.  He is trying to gather strength  to lift the large heavy sac up.  The sac is going to be carried by his head and neck.  His assistant seams to have his attention somewhere else. The man on the floor is trying to balance his left foot against to his right knee and right hand while still pulling the sac up with his left hand. The man walking in front of the man on the ground is carrying a load of wood and has already gone thru his own ordeal.  He is about to start his delivery up a hill.
