Talking to people it seems that the apes are gradually being found lower down on the rock these days and several times I have seen them on Main Street climbing on scaffolding, delighting the crowds. The majority of windows have bars or shutters to keep them out. I met a lady who had lost her Sunday roast from the kitchen where the meat was resting before carving. An ape opened the unlocked window and stole it, taking to the top of a tree in the garden where it had a feast along with another furry friend! Very annoying.
