Monkey Business






















Mono Titi

Our accommodations at Manuel Antonio are wonderful, because they back right up against the rain forest. I can step right off of my porch and see cool stuff. This afternoon, a troop of the local squirrel monkeys, an endangered species called the Mono Titi, came noisily through the compound. They are really adorable. This time, I even had my camera.

This morning, we went to the nearby town of Quepos on the Great Underwear Hunt. While in town, Leon pointed out a HUGE longhorn beetle that had been crushed in the middle of one of the streets. It was useless as a specimen, and I didn’t have my camera. But I feel like I’m now on a mission.



















View from near the pool this afternoon. The monkeys were driving the resort owners' cat absolutely crazy.
