The dog you can ride

 
November 1, 2016   Greece, Hydra
 
 

Speaking of donkeys, today's Times debunks some of the myths that bedevil donkeys. For example, donkeys are cautious as opposed to contrary; they are employed to guard livestock - guard donkeys; they are one of the earliest beasts of burden, predating camels; and they can be friendly, what one person calls a dog you can ride.

Here are a few photos of the many donkeys seen about Hydra. The donkey rider in the last shot - they seem to mostly ride side saddle - was talking on the phone so I guess there are no rules about using mobile devices while riding, not that Greeks care too much about rules. The lead donkey appeared to know the route to the monastary.
