Monkeys, monkeys, everywhere! I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record but it is so refreshing to be somewhere not obsessed with law suits! Today we went to the monkey forest where monkeys roam loose. Some can be aggressive, they sometimes jump on people and you really have to pay attention. It would do so many kids and especially modern parents so much good to spend time in a place like this where real danger, adventure and fun exist simultaneously. For all those parents that choose only safe and fun places really do their children a disservice. Children that get out in nature and hike along a ridge, handle animals and other natural elements like fire are so much better equipped for life than those who only play in residential parks with foam cushioning beneath their feet.
It was an adventurous day full of laughs and cries and even theft. One hairy little guy swiped a bottle of water from my bag and the little sister really howled! She was sobbing, "I'm thirsty right now and want my water!" It was pretty hilarious.
