I found following about an island in China, Monkey Island, with bronze-haired monkies!

About 10km south of Lingshui, XINCUN is a small market town with a large Hakka population - you'll see plenty of black-clad Hakka women with broad hats and gold and jade jewellery. Ferries ply from here across to Nanwan Monkey Island (Nanwan Hou Dao), which is actually a peninsula, but there's no landward access. The research station based here studies local groups of macaques, small, bronze-haired monkeys with pale eyelids and red backsides, and there's a visitors' centre where you can feed them. Check that the island is open before heading out here, however, as access is periodically denied due to "monkey illnesses".

Interesting. That's all I can say, except that's some good research there. Man, I'm hearing all these things about bronze-haired monkeys and real locations of Monkey Islands all over the world, I'm beginning to wonder if the Monkey Island series isn't purely based on imaginated fiction as I thought it once was...No, I still think it was pure literary imagination on the writers at LEC. Really nice research though, and it is very interesting. I only wish we could relate the monkeys to MI instead of relating MI to the monkeys.

Perhaps the next MI game will be "Illness on Monkey Island"!?

And instead of pink ships, you can ride around in ferries!

I haven't had too much homework recently, so I had a little bit of free time. I don't think I'll keep this one for long, however I do like it, but I'll return to my traditional one soon, which ever one that is.

I thought you might have made it to reflect your "Three Headed Monkey" status http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

I did change it because of my new status, thanks for noticing. It is a little much though, I'll change it back eventually.
