Bulgarian donkeys and their donkeycarts

You still see quite a few donkeys on the streets in Bulgaria. Often their wagons are full of weeds. At first this perplexed us but then we realized the donkeys are out with their owners collecting dinner. We were startled to see what heavy, non ergonomically correct carts these little donkeys pull up stony, cobbled streets, but in general they looked well nourished and content. Now I want a donkey. My son has been saying I need a pet.

Thanks for sharing those great photos. Did you enjoy your trip [except for the airport chaos]? My sister knits and crochets nonstop , and she has made string bags.

Terrific photos, Melinama! Thanks for posting them! I like the donkey with his head in the cart, eating the grass. But, they're all great.

Sorry you had to experience travel as we know it in the modern world. Not a stellar way to end a wonderful trip. We're glad you're home, salva y sana!

My son loved these. He assigned a different name to the donkey in each of the pictures: Frank, George, Browny, Tarzan, etc...

The street scene (3rd from last) is great.
