Donkey love

October 27, 2008



            Weaving along the crumbling back roads that connect Sentap to Samarkand, we passed two donkeys on the roadside affectionately nuzzling one another. Reacting to that humbling display of animal emotion, Mark said that it made sense that donkeys would be so caring to each other: after so much time spent suffering as beasts of burden, it seemed only logical that they would manifest great empathy and compassion for those that shared the same fate.


            ‘Yeah’, Di agreed. ‘I’m sure that donkeys would make pretty good lovers, although I  bet they’d be really loud in bed!’
