    Alexy met the monkey while at the Swayambhunath Temple in Kathmandu. "The monkeys at this temple all had different personalities," she told BuzzFeed. "Some of the monkeys didn't like having humans around ... but this one was really putting on a show."

    The temple is literally called the Monkey Temple by tourists.

    This ultra-sassy monkey was pretty into modeling. "I was super close to him, and I really think he knew he was being photographed. I was only a few feet away from him and he did not mind at all," she added.
