On every trip we take, we cross our fingers and hope, hope, hope to see monkeys. They are supposed to be everywhere in India. And it seems they are – everywhere we are not.
But not in Kathmandu! In Kathmandu, you can get your fill of monkey love.
And that is true monkey love – picking bugs off of one another. Smooch.
You talking to me?
I loved how these monkey mamas watched out for their little ones. They scooted them under their arms and wrapped them on their backs. It was delightful. These little guy is clearly not a teenager yet – he still doesn’t mind holding his mother’s hand in public.
And this son of a monkey stole my lollipop. Okay – he didn’t actually steal it – but he scared the monkey out of me and I threw it onto the ground so that he would stop coming toward me. But be sure he knew exactly what he was doing. And it was a brown tootsie roll pop – my favorite. He seemed to enjoy it though.
So, if you need a monkey fix, Kathmandu might just be the place for you.
