The Monkey has visited Chile twice, in 1998 and again in 2005. His first visit was brief, reaching the mountaintop border at the Paso de los Libertadores in the high Andes by foot from Argentina’s Uspallata Pass area.

Monkey aficionados will already know that the Monkey met his photographer in Chicago, back in 1994 (see the About page for more info). The Monkey lived in Chicago for a number of years, but wasn’t very much into being photographed at that point in his life. That said, he does have a few photos from the Chicago days, and he got many more shots during his July 2003 visit there. Have a look!
