They are very attractive. Remind me of Catholic priests or monks! Hey, "monks" and monkeys! And isn't there a Capuchin order in the Catholic church?

Okay, I'll quit being silly.

But I want to know if you left that food there purposely so the Capuchins would come and get it and you could take a picture.

In other words, were you "monkeying around" too?

@Jacob:
1- You are right, the monkeys were named after the monks.
2- The food was not left there on purpose, it was supposed to be taken to the closest trash bin on our way back, but the monkeys took advantage of the situation! :-)
