Today I checked off visit a Monkey Forest from my bucket list. This was just down the street from our resort. It was a little scary when the monkeys would try to take what was in your hands. There were tons of them from newborn to grandpas. It was pretty funny when a monkey and its cohorts found a bag of corn on a scooter and like nothing, stripped those in no time. Next time I need to shuck some corn I'll have to find a monkey.
We also walked and walked and walked to find an organic restaurant among the rice patties. By the time we got there I was pretty sure I was going to die from dehydration and heat stroke. It was worth it, more so when we walked down hill which took us minutes compared to walking uphill in the heat. It was crazy to think there were actually businesses on this dirt road among the rice patties. Cars weren't able to get here, so I guess we could have rented a scooter and piled on like the locals, but I'm a little scared of things with 2 wheels. I will say that when we got back down the hill we did pay a taxi to take us back to our resort where we quickly changed into our bathing suits and joined the kids and guys in the pool.
