Donkeys

Donkeys are very important animals here :o). I would actually not expect to find them here. I always connected donkeys with Greece but I never really thought in what other countries they will be used. Poor little ones. :o)


Except for Baku, the center of the city, (and I have not been to Ganja, the second biggest city in Azerbaijan) you get to see donkeys everywhere. They are used to carry heavy loads or they serve as personal transport :o)). And when donkeys have nothing to do, they just wonder around the towns by themselves, or they are left waiting by the roads.

I asked my friend if donkeys are used for some other things as well... I was told that yes, especially in villages where there are no other ways how to do it... :o(((

Donkeys are very important in Tajikistan as well. Actually I think that there are more people owning a donkey than those with a car, but I cannot prove it.

I think they are, but so far I never really heard them... I would not think of it if you did not say it... I guess they are too tired from the heat to talk :o)).
