Another Passion....Monkeys!

I am back from Costa Rica where I realized a longstanding dream of seeing monkeys in the wild. The endangered Titi is difficult to spot, not just because there are only 1500 left, but also because they are the smallest.
The large howler monkeys like to eat leaves and rest a lot, but the capuchins play! A whole band of them used the canvas roof of our boat as a trampoline. I tried to captured that, but everytime I popped up with my camera there were hands reaching for it!
Costa Rica is beautiful, but I enjoyed Mexico more because of the warmth of her people, its well preserved rich cultural heritage, and the wonderful artwork of the indigenous people. Though rich in animals of many kinds,
Costa Rica is lacking in a certain quality of openness, of joy and friendliness which I love.
