Question: How do you dress a donkey?

Not Gucci - but it will have to do.

This picture was taken in Fogo, one of the southern islands we visited in the Cape Verde archipelago a few years ago. This little donkey provided a splash of colour to the otherwise black landscape of this charismatic volcanic island. At first we thought it was a practical joke played by some youngsters.  We later found out that it was to stop flesh eating insects from feasting on this poor animal! Thumbs up to the locals for coming up with such a creative solution!
