Monkey


I was able to film Monkey on the trip. It took me a few weeks to meet up with him because he was already deep inside Karen State. When I got to where he was he was sick with malaria. He was in bed and not looking so good, but we talked and he joked around a bit. The next day we walked up and down mountains for 5 hours, amazing considering his condition. Despite being a very nice man, he's also tough.

Yes, I can remember him from your precious documentaries. Sounds like tough doesn't come close to describing him, either in body or spirit.
