Entry Description

Spent New Year's Day at Arashiyama Monkey Park in Kyoto, Japan. The snow monkeys, native to Japan, roam freely while the more evolved humans are enclosed (for safety) but are allowed to feed them. Irregardless of evolution, the only constant on this earth is food and the human touch.
