Today's picture is from 1936 and it shows a remote area near Shambat, Sudan. I like how we see a time and place where the humble donkey was still the prime mode of transportation. Interestingly there are still part of Africa where the Donkey is still King of the Road.

Below is an amazing picture from a remote region of Kenya known as Pokot. In Pokot the Donkey is still King of the Road. This region is known for milk productions and all the little farmers and families have a milk cow or two. The interesting thing is that they milk their cows, load the milk onto their donkey, and then the donkey walks to milk to the dairy on his own. He goes right to where he is supposed to, and waits in line till he is unloaded and then walks home. We also see that people will take their donkey to a water hole, load him with water, and then the donkey will walk the water home on his own, and just stand by the house waiting for someone to unload him. Really amazing. The picture below shows the donkey's going on their own to deliver the milk to the dairy.
