Trendy? No. Reliable? Yes!

Much as everyone wants "the latest" in transportation (I myself can hardly wait for Google's self-driving cars), there is something to be said for the solid, steady, uncomplaining service of a donkey. 

In rural northern Haiti, to be sure, cars cannot get up and down the steep mountains and ravines, and only the foolhardy go by moto (motorcycle) on the slippery gravel trails. But rain or shine, morning, noon and night, you will see Haiti's donkeys plodding slowly along, heavily burdened like their owners.  

They may not be trendy but they get the job done!
