As a child, I feared the Monkey Forest in Ubud. I have memories of monkeys jumping on my mom, crying out of fear that they might attack me, and nightmares that they would sink their teeth into me. So let's just say, I was a little hesitant to enter the monkey kingdom. Would they jump on me? Take my camera? Rifle through my bag? Help! Let's just say, none of those things happened. Phew. The five year old in me grew up and while I had tense moments, overall the experience had me feeling like I had conquered a childhood fear. Yes! Now if you like monkeys all over you, bring bananas.
