Monkey on the run in Shibuya!

It looks like a monkey ran through Shibuya today causing the very busy train service to stop and managed to get away in the end - an amazing feat given the sheer crowdedness of the area (Shibuya is home to the world's busiest pedestrian crossing). This newspiece from CNN explains it in much more detail. It looks like the little guy has been travelling around Japan and may have very well visited more cities than me :P

Here is a little image to make my point about the crowdedness. This is taken as we were crossing the road (which you can't really see because of all the people). Credit for this image goes to my cousin Kenan though since he took the picture. Oh and a little bit of trivia - I am the guy in the blue shirt ;)
