Alms giving - or taking?

"Didn't I tell you to give the alms to the MONKS?!"

I just loved this - walking back from the boddhi tree at Anuradhapura's sacred city, we were harrassed by monkeys who were after the offerings carried by the pilgrims and visitors to the stupa. But I am not quite sure how they got hold of this!

Harassment by monkeys---Is it better than being harrassed by Taxi/Auto walas when you exit the railway station/Airport, and the beggars when you come out of a temple??? What an array of emotions we go through and express!!! Interesting.....
