Description I laugh whenever I go back and look at this picture. There's just something funny about two boys on donkeys making their way along a paved road. I want to say it's like something out of a 'Monty Python' movie, but I know that would be way off base. (Actually, come to think about it, nothing was way of base when it came to Monty Python.) It doesn't hurt that these kids turned out to be pretty friendly. Well, they turned out to be pretty friendly after I shared part of an MRE, a military ration, with them. The donkeys... no they weren't friendly at all, the total antitheses of the character 'Donkey' from the movie 'Shrek.'
