Curious Donkey in Petra, Jordan
When most people think of Petra they see images of the iconic Treasury. Although it’s a clear highlight, there’s much more to Petra than the Treasury. It’s spread out over several kilometres and is made up of hundreds of caves, tombs and monuments carved out of sandstone cliffs and canyons. You can literally spend days hiking and exploring the rocky terrain and never walk the same path twice.
We captured this curious little guy while on a hike to the infamous monastery. He enjoyed the attention we gave him and even posed for this photo opportunity. We got the feeling he was quite comfortable with tourists and cameras!
