It touches to see how children are connected to animals. Although the animals are several times their height, the children seem to have them completely under control. Just like this boy who liberated the donkey from a place where he had been tied up for the last few hours on Isla del Sol in Bolivia. Impressive was the interaction between them, because their attention was completely dedicated to each other. The donkey, who did not utter a single sound, had already noticed the boy from a distance and has not let him out of his sight ever since. The boy, who meant his salvation, knelt purposefully in front of his legs and opened the knots. Not a playful act, but full awareness of every single movement.
