: : Man, I go away for a few days and look at all these damn postings....
: Just got back from a trip to the Indonesian island of Bali and Singapore. In addition to the scuba diving and boogie boarding, I did do some cultural stuff which include visiting some of the incredibly old (8th century A.D.!)Hindu temples. One of the sites I visited was called Pura Dalem which means "Temple of the Dead". It's in this forest and populated by numerous monkeys. Since Hindu law forbids a non-Hindu from entering the inner grounds, I was sitting on the exterior wall looking inward and examining the stone carvings. One monkey ambled over and, forewarned, I gave him a small banana. He sat down next to me and I kept giving him bananas. When I ran out, the little bastard got angry, jumped on my back and bit me! Fortunately, I was wearing my jacket because he put some pretty good teeth marks into it. It hurt but at least he didn't reach my skin.
: Monkey bite proof at the "Temple of the Dead". Now if that doesn't sell a Wested, I don't know what will! -MP
Hi Major Paul,
This is an amazing story that had me rolling...
I would really like to include this in the Indy's Diggs testimonials for the the Indy jacket. Please email me if this is OK. I would have emailed you, but I didn't see your address in the message.
