Double holiday

Happy Pesach! We just now had our festive seder meal, launching the Passover week holiday.
Today Orthodox Christians celebrate their Palm Sunday. And today is also Camera-Critters Sunday. So of course the animal of choice can only be the donkey.
This nice man is often in the Old City of Jerusalem or on the Mount of Olives, ready to give pilgrims the meaningful experience of sitting on a donkey in the Holy City.
Visit other bloggers sharing animal pictures every Sunday at Camera-Critters.

What a great photo! I love seeing your photos, because I get a glimpse of a place I'll probably never get to see, other than through your photos. Thank you for sharing!

Hello and welcome, friends. Yes, I really like seeing this Arab man and his partner in Jerusalem. They are a real working pair.
Tammy--Jewish tradition has it that when the messiah comes he will ride into Jerusalem through the Mercy Gate on a white donkey.
So yes, it is special.

If I had the space, I'd like to keep a donkey. I could see myself riding it to work each day...

Dina said...

Kris--Hmm, riding a donkey to work might take a long time. But Henry would love having a donkey. It is my favorite animal.

This shows a delightful relationship between man and beast. Nice contribution to the collection fo animals for the day.

I much preferred riding a donkey to riding a camel in Egypt. I did NOT enjoy riding the camel. My donkey had a mind of his own but he had personality.
