India: Six

Part of our day in Agra was spent exploring the Agra Fort. (Pictures and stories to come.) On our way out we ran into these little guys. There were about 20 of them total, that was including about 8 babies. They were so close I was tempted to try and pet one but I was too much of a chicken or too wise, you decide. Haha
Monkeys were everywhere in India but this is the closest Meaghan and I got to them, we were total tourists trying to get a pic standing next to one (those are on Meaghans camera, I will hopefully get a copy when she gets home) but we were not alone. There were people from all over the world standing there at that exact moment doing the exact same thing we were. It was quite entertaining hearing all the different languages and knowing although we couldn't understand them, we had an idea of what they were saying because we were saying the same thing. "Just scoot in there a little bit closer [insert name], he isn't going to jump on you." "Smile!" "Oh crap, watch out!" "Hahahahaha" "Wow so cool." Something along those lines.

I think that was a wise decision. They could have bit you and gave you rabies. LOL.

This just amazes me! So funny to think that these monkeys are just part of everyday life there...
