There is a massive donkey sanctuary on a north jutting peninsula about 8 miles west of the Karpaz cape.



Athough I'm unsure of any metalled roads leading to it there are planty of tracks.

Do you mean the donkeys I wrote about 'The Royal Family of Kumyali'? If so, then get hold of a copy of the current Zoom In magazine (still in some |Lemars, Tempo etc) and you will find why they are there and who looks after them and the help they need.

I believe a group of people also look after some donkeys opposite Escape Beach this end.

Don't think there are any others.

But one thing I do know and that is the groups need help with feeding these wonderful creatures, for as yet, there is no governmental set up for the attractive timeless animals who are a great tourist attraction (if they can be found.

Re: Msg 7&8,



I think LG means the donkeys at the very tip of the panhandle - Cape Andreas (Zafer Burnu), past the Apostolos Andreas Monastery.



One of the younger members of 'The Royal Family' of Kumyali is so sweet : always follows me around the harbour, I even have given him the name.

Yeah, the donkeys are still up there. We a family of them on the dirt track about one click from Cape Andreas a couple of weeks ago. Pretty tame.

You do realise they are GC donkeys?

They really are though! They ran wild after 1974 and donkeys being donkeys, age-wise, probably some of them do recognise only Greek.

when I was up at Dipkarpaz ayear ago, saw a goatsherd who was talking to his goats in Greek, so it could well be that the donkeys are monolinnguistic.

Come on Zoots be fair. You know very well that the Greek Cypriot donkeys live in South Nicosia and regularly contribute to their World Wild Web forum. Shall I name them for you? They are very sophisticated and can even write. The ones in Karpaz may have been Greek Cypriot before 74 but I am sure they have seen the benefit of converting and are towel heads by now.

When I was there last, I could have sworn it was singing an ezan. Honest. It had a stamp on its rump GR. Does it mean anything to you?

The tractor safari shows you the donkeys, especially now when the babies are being born. Donkeys are used to tractors, and don't tend to run away.

A great day out with visit to a secluded beach and great picnic lunch and soft drinks included 30
