How I “Shocked the Monkey” in the Philippines

While in the Philippines I had the opportunity to visit some remote areas of the Sierra Madre Mountains where monkeys like to hide.

Monkeys can get rather aggressive but they looked quite scared when they saw me, a typical Italian with a forest on the chest…that’s how I shocked the monkey in the Philippines.

Does the fact that there are humans who are as hairy as monkeys indicate that we descend from them?
The fact that I can communicate in three languages and there are people who know more languages and more complex ones than I do, while monkeys only utter very basic sounds, makes me doubt about it….
