donkeys...



This view from the boat shows the town of Fira. In order to get up to the city or down to the sea, a person must make one of 3 choices 1.) walk the jagged stairway, 2.) take a donkey on said jagged stairway or 3.) take a cable car.
We opted for the stairway going down to the port where we caught a boat ride to the volcanic island. After the boat trip, I braved the stairs and took off climbing all 588 of them. Along the way I passed donkey's going down and up with passengers on their backs. Poor donkeys, forced to lead such a sucky life...maybe they buck off a passenger or two a year for revenge, I would if I was a donkey...
