The humble donkey is certainly kept in his place in Morocco. This beast of burden lives up to its title, as donkeys are used on a daily basis, both in the cities and the country. Though commonly used for transporting goods, they are not commonly used for transporting people — in the cities, at least. Bicycles and motorized vehicles are reserved for that job. The donkey seen here has been outfitted with a simple and traditional saddlebag, filled with goods that are most likely on their way to be sold. In addition to labor, donkeys are also known for their patience. True to form, this one is calmly waiting for his master to be done with his business.
