This morning I was woken up by the sounds of scampering feet on the roof of the staff accommodation at work. The mischievous long-tailed macaques were at it again.
I looked out the window as they jumped off the roof onto the mango tree, they turned to look at me, groggy eyed primate that I am, and then one scratched it’s balls.
Good morning to you too.
