A walk around McRitchie Reservoar

Singapore is a very crowded place, and beeing used to wide open spaces in Sweden and Australia I sometimes feel a bit claustrofobic. At least there's a few parks in the city. Not really wild rain forrest and peace and quite... rather pretty crowded places where you can still see the endless rows of high rise buildings if you lift your eyes off the track. But, anyway, it's better than nothing.

This Sunday afternoon me and my cooleagues Jelly and Andreas with his son Jonas went for a walk around the McRitchie reservoar. It's a pretty nice walk in some forrest which is not to badly cultivated. The main attraction of this park is the plentitude of monkies that stray around. They're pretty cool to watch. Just don't feed them, because in Singapore signs with warnings truely means that you _will_ be fined.

The monkies are not affraid of people at all. They can even be a bit aggressive or at least the dominant males show of a bit by snarling at by passers. For some reason they are more aggressive towards women then men, perhaps because the women tend to give a better response to their show:)
