Ive just read a report on 'allowing donkeys to take the strain' in lindos. Lindos is such a beautiful place but very steep, to see these donkeys struggling in the heat with overweight, overbearing people who have no regard for what the poor animal is going through has put my husband and I off going back to Rhodes. Every night we would walk back to our apartment with a bunch of carrots for these poor worn out animals. Whoever you are, people like you who use & encourage use of these donkeys are encouraging the locals. How would you like someone of your weight or size on your back!
