...donkeys...tales...

...they say that in Soviet times there was a time when there was a high tax on keeping donkeys as a part of cattle. People in Sheki that could not afford the taxes would just take the donkeys out to the fields and leave them out there...donkeys would fine their way back and most probably couldn't understand why they were not let in...

...nowadays people are free to keep the donkeys although one can mainly see them in the villages rather than in Sheki itself...
