The steep hills of Santorini have long been made accessible to tourists through the use of donkeys, available to ride instead of walking up. The problem? Too many fat tourists, especially those from cruise ships serving the U.S. and UK, are breaking the donkeys’ backs.
Given the size of donkeys, they should safely carry no more than 112 pounds.
Yikes, that leaves a lot of us out. I weigh more than that, and I’d be fine with being told I could walk to the top or see the view from the bottom of the hill, but not ride a donkey at the cost of harming the poor creature. How about you?
