Donkeys seemed to be everywhere in Thila... the first one we saw walked towards us as we neared the village: he left it, we entered... Soon later, by the cistern, another donkey... and as we walked though the narrow alleys, we came across more and more donkeys.
Often we shared the same path, the same lane.. we walked together for a stretch. If it had not been for the dozen of aggressive vendors, we would have seen a higher number of donkeys than of men and women. Surprisingly we saw no dogs.
Donkeys are my most favourite animals, dogs my least favourite. Thila turned out to be a very happy place for me: the perfect village
Like elsewhere in the Central Highlands men will just start to dance, even without particular reason.
