... overlooking the water. His ear was black and bloody, having been bitten by a monkey at the monkey sanctuary he was staying at. This further justifies my fear of monkeys. Safely arriving at the South end of the island three hours later, we checked into a hostel, sharing a room with a nice French couple. We spent the evening walking to the water (which meant a giant climb uphill to our place), ...
