Photographer's Note

This is one of the most traditionals pictures you can take in Tijuana, however I never do it until the last week I took a few of this because the owner of this beautiful animal was angry with me. I don't know if you know this, but this is not a zebra, is a donkey, they paint this rays in they bodies. The urban leyend say, the owners of this donkeys start to paint the donkeys because in the begining of the 1900's to took picture of the tourist in this pedestal with this donkeys, the pictures were in B&W and the donkey does not shows so much in the pictures, so to make more notorious adding the rays, so this keep this tradition until this day, this help to be more attractive to he tourist and increase it the pictures and of course the money.
