Our solar-powered donkey

The 2012 pilgrimage of the Via Francigenia lungo Via Appia began this morning in Teano. Our group of 6 Norwegians, 4 Italians, 3 Danish, 3 Americans, 2 Germans, 2 Australians, and a Belgian living in England was joined by Rafael and his solar powered donkey Brio. Actually, I think the solar panel on Brio's back is to charge Rafael's tablet, not to power Brio. But solar power or not, Brio was a big hit with all of us and with the young girl at the pizzeria where we had lunch.
