These graceful ladies carrying their wares on their heads evoke a time past and we shall soon not see them any more. I had wanted to call the series 'endangered species' as I feel they are so precious, but was told that the title would be politically incorrect and so a friend suggesetd the wonderful title of Tropical Carriage. Political incorrectness has reached epidemic levels where our children's stories and our every day lives are suffering due to our need to 'nanny' everyone. Sad.
