Verb. From Zarma.
“To walk with things on your head, but using only your head for balancing them”
I’m glad I’ve found this one, as I’ve always been in awe of those who can perform this with relatively heavy objects and pull it off without even caring that they have impeccable balance. Plus it gave me a chance to use the picture of the dog and the frog!
Note that tallabe is pronounced ‘ta-la-bay’ and not ‘tall abe.’ A tall Abe would just be unusual.
