New law brings a sigh of relief
Greece has started to prohibit overweight tourists from taking rides on donkeys in Santorini.
This form of traditional transport in Santorini is sighing a sigh of relief following complaints made by donkey owners.
Tourists visiting this popular island and wanting to reach the peak avoid the stiff uphill climb by riding on donkeys.
However, what is a comfort for tourists has been to the detriment of donkey health with owners complaining the spines of donkeys are being affected.
Hence the prohibition of overweight tourists riding donkeys.
From now onward those whose weight exceeds 100kg will have to find alternative means to make their way to the centre of the island.
