Quick blog: A monkey in the parking lot

Christmas in Surin and one of the many creatures stirring was a monkey.

Monkeys can be found in Southern Thailand, Lop Buri and near the sea, but not in Northeast Thailand.

I walked around the building to get on my bike and go home and there, next to my bike, was a monkey. I asked the receptionist why there was a monkey in the province of Surin and she said it came from the temple across the street and it was visiting. If it was someone’s pet, they certainly weren’t keeping an eye on it.

It was only a few feet away as I got on my bike. The monkey wanted nothing to do with me, but wasn’t afraid either.

Maybe now I’ve seen everything in this country?  Likely not.
