On the way to the sanctuary it started to rain quite heavily, we noticed all the locals on bikes had pulled over and were sitting the shower out under little bamboo shelters on the road side. We were climbing a hill and rounding a corner as some westerners began to overtake us, they weren't wearing helmets, the first ...

... monkey park. We were thinking of getting on the public bus, but a westerner who now lives in the town informed us that we should get a motorbike. The town had hardly any tricycles so a motor bike was the next best thing. Good job we didn't get a bus because the park was much further than we both thought. The guy on the motor bike offered to take us to the chocolate hill after for a good price. We said no, manly because we wanted mix with the locals on the public bus and also ...
