... took us to many wonderful places. We saw waterfalls, lakes, small villages, fishing farms and other spectacular views. The highlight of our day however was feeding wild monkeys in the forest! It was the most fascinating thing I've ever done, one grabbed my skirt then pulled a bag of buts out my hand. That was scary and I screamed but it made the experience funny.
