Santa Teresa

... the locals. We sat on the bench outside of the grocery store eating an ice cream cone and the owner taught us how to howl like a howler monkey. He did it really good.....all the howler monkeys come to his grocery store now.
People along the road are waving to us now as well, at first they just treated us like tourists.

People come and go at the hotel everyday. We get to know them for a day or two and then off they go ...

A travel blog entry by junglebelle


... are a bit more shy than the capuchins, but still came close enough to give us a good look. They have very fluffy little black tummies! We saw one with a tiny baby hanging onto her back.
