Monkeys, monkeys, everwhere monkeys!











Animals wander the streets freely here. Most keep to them selves and mind their own business, most of them with the exception of monkeys! The first day I was here a monkey snuck up behind me and stole some fruit of my hand. It was a bit startling to say the least. Since then I have been very conscious of their presence. They can be cute as babys, and funny to watch as adults; but truth be told - they are a pain in the ass. They are constantly fighting, stealing food, humping, masturbating, and just generally causing chaos. They will steal your glasses and not give them back until you give them some food; they are smart little rascals! Places hire men to walk around with slingshots on monkey patrol. I even had a run in with a dozen or so once that i had to scare off with a stick and loud yelling. All this said, i still kinda love monkeys.

My feelings about monkeys exactly. You gotta love them, but they can really be bastards.

I remember seeing a lot of monkeys with missing limbs and huge scars on their faces. Brutal lives. But still cute somehow.
