A Donkey and His Guide

A Donkey and His Guide

Trekking to the Monastery in the ancient city of Petra, you are passed by people riding on donkeys. Many of the tourists opt to take the ride with a local guide to the top of the mountain. On my way back down, when a ride was most tempting, I looked over to see a man relaxing with his donkey. The relationship between a working animal and its master is one as old as time, even older than the ancient city of Petra. We’re all in the throes of history, even when we’re not exploring its physical relics.
