  flydragon / © Simon Kolton      Project : Lopburie Blue
Lopburi is a city not so far from Bangkok, around 150 km. I spent just 2 days in this city last July, and the monkey there amazed me, then i didnt visit much the city, but hunted monkeys. I call this Project Lobburi Blue, because there is something sad i felt with the monkeys in Lopburi.
Lopburi can have as many as 2,000 monkeys running around the centre of town on any given day.
Originally they ventured forth from their jungle home to the city square back in the 1680s, in the time of King Narai,
when Lopburi was Thailand's second capital. The monkeys gravitated towards the local shrine for Phra Karn,
the Hindu God Kala, Lord of Creation and Destruction, and soon became considered disciples of Phra Karn.
