scoff at the monkeys

While in/at/on Railay, it is a good idea to look up every once in awhile here, because there might be a family of monkeys eager to drop things on your head.

Or just be cute.


These are spectacled langurs. I ran into (under? I struggle so much with the prepositions!) a family of them on my way from West Railay to East Railay when I first landed. I was tired and hungry and when I looked down to maybe retrieve my camera, I instead noticed that each of my legs was providing lunch for a half-dozen mosquitoes and I kept going. The next day, there was a cluster of them in the trees near my guesthouse.


I also saw a group of macaques at pranang cave. I did not photograph them.
