A day in Lopburi
12.12.2010 - 12.12.2010
On the recommendation of Duncan we split up our journey to Chiang Mai with a day trip to Lopburri. A town famous for its monkey-inhabited temples (the presence of the monkeys could be explained by the fact they FEED them?). A few monkeys can be seen around town, climbing on roofs and telephone wires and generally causing havoc... which explains why all locals carry catapults around with them. But nowhere are there as many as by the largest temple, where there are monkeys EVERYWHERE! You learn why the phrase 'cheeky monkey' exists, as you can't turn you back for too long here before a monkey is on you trying to unzip your bag.
