Monkey love…………….

October 26, 2009

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.

    I live in Brazil, and a couple of times I saw little squirrel sized monkeys near my house. It’s rare but nice to see the little critters in the trees.

    Well, now you know where to steal one of those monkeys to bring to me when you come home 😉

    That? Is awesome! Sometimes I see deer around here, but wow, monkeys.

    Loved your pictures. The one little guy sure seems to be enjoying that lollipop.
    When visiting Costa Rica, at Manuel Antonio, we had monkeys frolicking on the roof all day and night. It was a lot of fun to sit on the terrace and watch them. Out on the trail we had a troop of Howler Monkeys throwing bananas at us. The first time we heard a kookaburra here in Australia, we swore it was a howler monkey, and started looking for the flying bananas!
