Donkeys and Burdens !

" Little Donkey!"
When we visited the fascinating country of Morocco it was impossible not to be taken back in time. 
We booked everything ourselves because we wanted to avoid a Package Tour at a resort. 
We stayed in Fes in a Riad just outside the Medina gates.
I love animals and in the Medina there is no traffic or motorised vehicles. The Donkey or Mule is certainly the beast of burden.
Today I found myself singing "Little Donkey"  with Christmas being so near and I remembered the little donkeys in the Medina.
























So Donkeys are still travelling and still carrying their"heavy loads!!"
