SANTA MARIA de FE ......... I spent a lot of time in this town square. In the above photo on the right, the hotel is just behind the red car. And, that photo was taken just in front of the Catholic church.

According to the story I heard, the first howler monkey found his way to the park more than ten years ago. Eventually, a female was brought in to join him. Now, their family runs free in the park and neighboring area. Yes, they are wild animals but they are very used to people and take bananas right out of your hand. I tried to make that happen every day.

It usually wasn't a peaceful time in the square. The trees were screaming and crawling with cicadas. Trying unsuccessfully to make more noise were green parrots. Their nests were huge, but their volume didn't stand a chance in the competition.
