Monkeys…

Posted by Susanna On December - 16 - 2010

This day was special since today was the big parade of all schools for celebrating the annual day of Baños. They had trained everyday since I am here and you could hear them everywhere with their drums and other instruments. It was nice to watch them marching while doing their music and dances in their costumes. It reminded me quite a lot of German carnival.
In the afternoon I went with a friend to Puyo since we heard both from others that their is a monkey reserve for unwanted and disabled pet monkeys – the “Reserva de mono”. I was excited but did not know what to expect. But I had heard it was wonderful… We took the bus to Puyo what just takes 1 1/2 hours and from there a taxi for $3 to the “Reserva de mono”. As soon as we were there we saw the monkeys. Over 60 monkeys of seven species live here free and come for food ad playing. It was amazing… Immediately a little disabled Wooley monkey called Dorita climbed up on me and didn’t live me… She was probably the cutest monkey I’ve ever seen… So adorable. But just check out the photos and see yourself…
