The old and the new
This is so fascinating, crates of Coca Cola bottles being hauled by mules. This was in Fes, the alleyways in the souk is so narrow that everything has to be carried in by donkeys. We stayed just outside the souk and we came upon this donkey being loaded up with Coke bottles and then we watched it carrying them up the hill into the souk. Everything is carried in and out by donkeys, food, drinks, construction material. Every now and then there'll be a call to get out of the way because a donkey with a load is coming through. It goes on non stop. The locals don't like it when you take pictures of their animals, these are their prized possessions.
