      ... baker' in the New Town (which really didn't look so new), and then headed to another temple called Maha Bodhi. This is the host of the oldest tree in the world. I wish I had known this when I went there... Walking up to the temple I was surrounded by maybe 60 monkeys all play fighting and grooming each other; it was really amazing to see. I hung around taking pictures for a while, until I stopped to photograph two baby monkeys and, what I can I can only ...
