Timbuktu preferred method of transport, Mali, W. Africa

The team of eight unbridled donkeys walk past the mud mosque laden with their heavy load of gravel. The mud wall's protruding wood beams and the relaxed gait of the animals and people add to the gentle scene. The donkey in the lead shows a slightly raised head sending the message that he is their leader. Timbuktu, Mali, Sub Sahara, W. Africa
