I am reading this now - hilarious backpacking short stories by Ayun Halliday. It was published in 2003 - and some of the stores are from the 90s - so I wouldn't use it as a travel guide - just a great read.

When I was in my wife's village long ago, I was feeding a money a banana and then gave him the rest of my coke. He downed that thing like a veteran. Very funny watching a monkey drink out of a coke bottle (It only had a little coke in it - I didn't want him to get more hyper than he already was). Then he sat on his haunches and started chatting away with me. I wish I could speak monkey, as I was really curious what he was saying. I suspect it was something like "Give me some more coke damnit!" My wife took a picture of me handing him a peanut and it looks exactly as if he's shaking my hand in the photo.
