Description
When the user was in Santorini, Greece, and wanted to visit an old settlement in the mountains, her wheelchair could not handle the difficult terrain. She borrowed a donkey from a few workers to get there.

Users comments
It worked very well for her. In this area with steep mountains it is common for people to rent donkeys to travel from place to place.
