I visited an animal park in Kenya after the evangelistic meetings. The dangerous animals were behind fences, of course, but a large giraffe was separated from us only with a thin electric fence. I was able to get quite close to it, talk with it and take close up pictures.
Then I got to mingle with a number of the safe animals that were free to roam without fencing in the park. I could get close enough to the zebras to touch them. The impalas kept a little more space between us, but they were still quite close.
The monkeys – they were just everywhere – all over the ground and in the trees, just like squirrels are in a park in America. The monkeys would run and play all around us. They were so near to us, I felt I could almost touch them too, even the smallest little baby monkeys. There was a baby monkey hanging upside down under it’s mother’s belly, hanging on for dear life as she ran around. It was so cute!
I have a little monkey story before I finish.
