Tijuana

One of the craziest things I saw (among many) in Tijuana, Mexico were that city’s "zonkeys."

On almost every street corner, photographers will take your picture with a donkey painted (for some reason) to look like a zebra using ancient box cameras.    

Apparently this has been going on nearly as long as tourists have been crossing the border

into Tijuana.  I understand vintage photos like this are a hot item on e-bay.  It’s nutty, but there is just something about it that’s appealing too.

    I visited Tijuana recently and saw the same Donkeys. People were calling them “Mexican zebras.” I could not help but feel really bad for the poor animals. Spray painting fur seemed a little inhumane to me.
