New Nickname

I have a new nickname. I am fondly called, "Diana monkey." One of the first weeks I was here, some of the kids started calling me Diana Monkey and I had no idea why. I tried to ask, and from what I gathered I learned that there's a book in the school library with a monkey named Diana in it. Eventually I got one of the kids to show me the book. Turns out, it's a book about monkeys, and there is a kind of monkey called a Diana Monkey. Here's the proof:
I've grown quite fond of my new nickname. I melt a little bit inside everytime I hear Gokulraj call out, "Diana Monkey, where is your buffalo?" According to Gokul, buffalo is Anne, the other dance volunteer here at RSO. I still haven't figure out why he refers to he as "my buffalo." A mystery still to be solved.


  1. ha. that's hilarious! and thanks again for skyping with me on my birthday! i loved it!!!

  2. I think I'd rather be a monkey than a buffalo:) Very fun! Nicknames...acceptance:)
