There is a really cool park in Bangkok called "Lumphini Park". It's a really big park and reminds me a little of Central Park (even though I've never been there). You can read about it here if you're interested. Anyway, it's a neat park that has all kinds of things in it. Food places, big areas to run or bike, exercise areas (even a free weight area), and a lake in the middle. Around the lake there are tons of Monitor Lizards. We had heard about them, so we just had to go see them....
Anyway, when we got to the lake area we started looking for the lizards. The first one we saw was a baby. he had a little crab in his mouth - it was cool!
Then we saw a big one - MAN! Those things are HUGE!
Diya wasn't sure what to think about them :)
At the lake they had all kinds of paddle boats. We rented one for the hour and paddled around the lake. Aashini sat in the middle and steered. She thought it was fun :)
See... I really did paddle! :)
It was cool to be in the middle of a lake in the middle of a city :)
