Chris Sees a Monkey Attack

In Costa Rica, like other places that have good weather all year round, they don't bother with walls. The Si Como No hotel butts right up against the nature reserve, so sometimes creatures come for a snack. These brown squirrel monkeys are super-endangered.

About 6 or 7 monkeys showed up. For a while they hung around on the railings near the edge of the restaurant.

Then, in a quick coordinated strike, monkeys were everywhere! Like hummingbirds, it was difficult to get a good photo of them because they were so fast.

The wait staff tried to shoo them away, but you can't stop a hungry monkey! One waitress grabbed the tray of bananas and ran off with it to protect it from the monkeys. That was pretty funny.

This monkey didn't go away hungry...

If you are thinking of going to Peru instead of Costa Rica, see my Peru Page.

If you are thinking of going to Southern France instead of Costa Rica, see my France Page.

If for some reason you think that I'm a great writer, and you like scary, conspiracy-laden, psychological thrillers (think DaVinci Code), you can read my novel, City of Pillars, published by The Invisible College Press. It has nothing to do with Costa Rica though. PS: I use my middle name as my nom de plume, but it's still me.

If for some reason you want to read my creepy, melancholy, darkly-humorous photocomic, just click on this link for tiny ghosts. Unlike the book, this is totally free! However, it also doesn't have anything to do with Costa Rica.
