    Deconstructing Monkeytown: Lopburi as Idea

    Only a 90 mnute drive north of Bangkok . . . . .  but a world away!

    Lopburi is has a Monkey Temple, but the monkeys spill over into the nearby commercial district.

    Everything in Lopbury is monkey-themed. Even the visitors.

    "Monkeys are known for stealing food, yet . . . "

    Very healthy coats on these sacred monkeys.

    Do the regular passengers of Bus 79 even see the monkeys?

    Do the temple monkeys even see the Bus 79 any more?

    Comfort in a mother's arms.

    Electricity! No problem.

    For 250 years this scene has endured.

    The most difficult of Mara's temptations is, of course, MonkeyMind.

    Life goes on within you and without you.

    Contemplative motherhood, simian style.
