“Ilse, a childhood friend of mine,
once found a raspberry in the camp
and carried it in her pocket all day
to present to me that night on a leaf.
IMAGINE A WORLD in which
your entire possession is
one raspberry and
you give it to your friend.”
Oh, you know, chillin with my homie, yup, the baby monkey. nbd.
According to the legend, the monkey’s parents were killed by locals (for food), and the the baby was somehow rescued by this hostel’s staff. Since then, the baby monkey accepted this dog as her parent, and falls dead asleep while clinging to the hair around the dog’s belly. Its very entertaining to see how the dog carries the baby everywhere she goes (sometimes even hitting the monkey on the head going up the steps). Oh, and the dog gets super angry and jealous when other dogs try to play with her monkey. Isn’t nature wonderful?
