Monkeys on the balcony


This afternoon I was startled when I saw a shadow on the curtain and a large shape moved into view.
It was a monkey. A big monkey, as big as a medium-sized dog.
Later his family showed up. Hanging in the tree. Walking on the rail. Sitting on the air-conditioning unit. There was even a little baby.
The neighbors didn't like them. They were throwing sticks and yelling at them. It probably didn't help his case when one monkey ran up a tree with a bag of trash which he then emptied out.
After the rain stopped and they'd eaten up all the fruit in the trash, they moved on.

videoHere's some brief monkey footage.
