We saw 4 donkeys on the camino, but this was our first. People later told us that this man walks the camino and back constantly with his lovely donkey Ella. I asked if I could pat her and he said "Of course she's supremely friendly". So I did. And she was. And so soft.... It would be amazing to have an animal with you and of course they would be very special company for someone that walks non stop. We felt very blessed to have met all four donkeys that we did (especially Rocinante) knowing that these are the characters that make your camino experience amazing.
