The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

Lumpini Park, Bangkok, Thailand
Lumpini Park is one of the largest parks in Bangkok's city center. We had been staying near it for the last week, but we simply used the park as a landmark to orient ourselves when wandering around Bangkok. We learned there was a public pool in the park. So, in an effort to keep cool, we walked over to check it out.
It's the average city park. It is clean and does provide many park activities for Bangkok residents. There's a pool, an outside weight room (like Muscle Beach), small manmade lakes, trees, exercising people, people pickinig under trees. Everything about it was what you would expect, except for the gigantic iguanas swimming and hanging out along the lakes edges. It was pretty alarming. I regret that I don't have a picture of it.
