After two long hauling days of lectures full accounting and politics I decided to treat myself to a little trip to “Monkey Mountain” Khao Takiab. I hopped on the city bus and was dropped off at an empty beach with a mountain side temple… full of monkeys! Although I was warned that the monkey’s steal your stuff – I didn’t realize I had entered monkey territory (yet) – and a big monkey came flying at me trying to steal my coffee! I’ve never screamed so loud in public before – so startling! I observed the monkeys for a while and although blogging is meant for words – I believe pictures do this much more justice. The way the babies cling onto their mothers and play….. truly incredible! This is a species whose absolute main purpose is nurturing one another. I also hope that, although these photos are beautiful and this is a subjective personal experience, I can portray Thailand as objective as possible, with photos of real people and real living conditions…………… Enjoy!
