There’s a restaurant in Japan where monkeys serve you drinks and bring you hot towels in exchange for soya beans. Just too awesome, see a video here. Japan used to be low on my priority list of places to visit. But it’s slowly getting higher and higher.
Looking at monkey stuff, I also came across this video of a man disguised as a monkey in Lucknow; he is there to frighten away monkeys that trouble passengers at the local train station. I don’t get that though, if he looks so much like a monkey, wouldn’t he befriend the monkeys instead? I think the monkeyman would be successful in scaring me more than the monkeys.
