The Lost Girls monkey around in Peru

The Lost Girls are accustomed to rubbing elbows with wild things in the concrete jungle they call home (a.k.a. New York City), but they weren't prepared to have monkeys on their back when they visited Monkey Island Preserve in the Peruvian rain forest. The hairy chimps dropped onto their heads from branches above until the women appeased them by forking over bananas as a peace offering.
