Photographer's Note

Donkey/Mule/Horse drawn carts are proving very difficult to remove from the roads of Albania despite the considerable increase in car ownership. Whilst the lack of cash is always the main reason for this other important reasons are relevant. E.g. Most of villagers were given land at the end of the communist regime but that's it what does one do with a piece of land 2-5 miles away, no money, no tools no good roads. In these conditions riding a donkey drawn cart to and fro from your land is vital. Another less important reason is that older people have passed the age where they can be bothered learing to drive a car.
