Burro and Cart

Burro and Cart

I could not believe my luck re. a photo opportunity when I spotted this burro and cart tethered outside what appeared to be an old ruin. On closer inspection I realised the guy in the photograph lived there, and it was not a ruin but his home.

Watching him unload the hay to his garden and his home now surrounded by cars and modern buildings, it seemed as though time had stood still. I wonder what he thinks of all the changes he’s witnessed over the years.

Have they improved his life – I wonder?
