Donkeys are the philosophers of the animal kingdom. If you don’t believe me just do a little research on writers of yore like Giulio Landi (1551), Giovan Battista Pino (1550), Nicolas Machiavelli (1469-1527), and most famously Joannes Buridanus (1292-1363)
Once a year I get on a big airplane and fly to Noord Holland for a couple weeks of frivolity as well as a visit to Stichting De Ezelsociëteit in Zeist, a village near Amsterdam. This small donkey sanctuary provides a blissful respite from the wild atmosphere of Amsterdam.
