Monkey Business in Jaipur

The Rhesus Macaque monkeys of Jaipur are so fascinating in their inter-actions with humans that National Geographic UK produced a special about them.

We enjoyed catching views of them in a couple of places during our tour of Jaipur, including the walk up toward the actual Monkey Temple. They're quite relaxed around humans. In the very short video we shot below, we're watching them replace jungle vines with power (or telephone) lines and they really seem to be having fun, even the little guy who can never quite reach the wire.

They were fascinating to watch, right at home amidst the ruins and using the power lines as jungle vines.
