Dining woes

Vervet Monkey on wall in Entebbe, Uganda

Vervet Monkey on wall in Entebbe, Uganda

We were on the sprawling grounds of the Imperial Botanical Beach Hotel in Entebbe overlooking Lake Victoria for supper two nights ago and the place was crawling with well over 25 vervet monkeys (it must have been 2 or more troops) and as soon as the food came we had to work hard to keep the little buggers away.  We were almost ready to leave when one finally jumped up and snatched our hamburger.  (I know it happens to you all the time.)  I chucked a fork at him. (Was that wrong?)

  1. Ha! It’s hard enough keeping flies off the food, let alone monkeys.
