Donkey Cart on a Long Dirt Road.

Driving the long stretches of winding mountainous dirt roads between settlements in the Cederberg is challenging, especially in a Sedan car. On one of these roads we met this absorbing couple and their donkey cart and stopped for a chat.

They were covering a distance of near 40km having visited family in a distant town. Their cart was laden with goods, the donkeys and mules their connection with the outside world, and treated that way. They had been away for 4 days and were returning to their home, a wonderful farm a few kilometers before Wupperthal.

Don’t you just love that this kind of simple charmed existence still exists in our World. It was very hot and they must have been exhausted, yet couldn’t have been friendlier. I just wish I’d had four juicy carrots for these sweet brave animals, I didn’t but I gave them an ear scratch instead.
