Monkey hugs

After some new volunteers arrived this week (the group is getting big!), we decided to go to the monkey sanctuary today. This is basically a place where the monkeys live really close to more urban area. We did not really get an explanation, but I assume that with the money they get from the tourist attraction they protect a piece of forest with the monkeys in it. At least you can see they handle the piece of forest responsibly. The monkeys are not forced to do anything, and we had to eat the bananas ourselves to prove they are safe. The monkeys are called “Mona Monkeys”, and are really cute. See for yourself!
