Entry 44

Known as the 'Summer Furnace' for it's oppressive humidity and searing heat, Chongqing could also be known for being crap. With more than 30 million people, Chongqing was an amazing mix of filth, squalor, and a touch of materialism.

It's best to assume these puppies requested to be in small cages with limited access to food and water.
We'd prefer to live at the back.
The People's Liberation Monument was built in 1945 to commemorate victory over Japan in WWII. Once the tallest building in the area, it's now dwarfed by skyscrapers and shopping centres. How interesting!
When in Chongqing, do what the Chongquingians do. No not poop in the streets...shop!
For a moment there, we forgot we were in Chongqing.
It's best to assume this monkey requested to be chained to a tree with an empty coke bottle for company.
Chances of returning to Chongqing by choice: zero to nil.
