Having encountered an eyeglass-snatching monkey in Bali and having seen them help themselves to unattended roti in Varanasi, I’ve come to understand that sometimes our evolutionary cousins have a mind of their own.
So, it came as no surprise to see a recent video showing a monkey taking a metro ride.
It’s not known whether they had a ticket. The monkey took the violet line to the Bata Chowk metro station, peacefully sauntering across the compartments.
It’s one of those few instances in which I can’t say, “Only in New York.”
