Lopburi, Thailand

This is one of my favorite photos from Thailand. A monkey chillin' in the crook of the Buddha's arm.  Pretty awesome.  The Khmer temple in Lopburi has been pretty much taken over by hundreds of  macaques. They aren't afraid of people and are protected therefore can pretty much do as they please all around town. The moms had just delivered their babies . . . precious.

Before visiting the Khmer Temple (Phra Prang Sam Yot) we had a great lunch at the Lopburi Hotel Cafe.  We filled our pockets with mini bananas from the dessert table--they were a real hit with the macaques. The macaques are a huge hit all over town, as celebrated by the giant golden monkey out front which Rick had to pose by. Even more interesting is the unique parallel parking style of the urinals.  In a country with too many people crammed into a small space, it is brilliant. It got a thumbs up from the boys.
