The Municipal Donkey

Sicily0263

Our first trip today was to the local town of Castelbuono, a small hill town with a medieval pattern of small, winding and narrow streets. Even the small municipal rubbish lorries cannot navigate these streets so the town relies on a number of municipal donkeys to navigate the streets and bring household rubbish to a central point where it can be transferred to a lorry. Sometimes the old ways are the best ways!
