I yelled at the Thai Monkeys, but they did not speak Italian

While traveling across Thailand we arrived in Lopburi, a small city with archaeological sites and monkeys. They are everywhere: in the streets, on the trees, trying to enter the houses and waiting at the platform for the next train to arrive. They are cute, but they are definitely too many.

One day we were walking to the hostel with our bag stuffed with teas and amazing thai snacks when someone ripped it off… no, it wasn’t someone, it was a monkey showing us its teeth! Suddenly a monkey-gang gathered and shared our food: one took a bottle, one had the snacks. I recall saying loud: “Give food back to me, rude monkeys! ” while Ale was trying to explain to me that monkeys are NOT supposed to speak or understand Italian.
