Have You Bumped a Donkey Lately?

This became something that I would ask Robin daily as we travelled through Peru. And trust me, he HAS bumped a few! Most mountain roads have their share of hazards, including dangerous drivers, trecherous potholes, steep dropoffs, sharp switchbacks, children, people, bicycles, dogs (we have not hit a dog yet, although they are asking for it the way they chase the truck), taxis, motorbikes, cows, goats, chickens, llamas, sheep, alpacas, and … yes, Donkeys.

The thing about the donkeys is that they don’t get out of your path, the way the other animals do. On many an occasion, we have had to literally inch up to the donkey and nudge it off the road with the bumper of the truck. This is not “Have you Driven a Ford Lately?” country … this is “Have You Bumped a Donkey Lately?” territory!
