... bones. First stop though is the fish market. Graham and Lynne had said it was quite an experience and that should we go, we would be thankful of wearing closed shoes. Correct on both counts. There is a strip of merchant stalls selling the most impressive sea shells. One of these guys unpack shells in order of wow-factor and the last is a kind of spiney affair which looks very delicate, beautiful. It almost sways my resolve of not purchasing shells here.

Our guide walked us to where a group of the monkeys were, and they were totally unfazed by our presence. These monkeys cannot digest sugar and eat only flowers and young leaves and some fruits. When these monkeys eat something that is difficult to digest they will eat charcoal as a digestive aid. ...
