The lizards who live in Bangkok's Lumpini Park are HUGE. But, they are pretty much OK with humans and the humans are pretty much OK with them. And, the lizards themselves? Well, they seem to carry on with independent lives: the Moms sun bathe at their leisure, the Dads work out on the road and in the pool. And, the teenagers love being totally without any parental guidance whatsoever. Sound familiar? Yes, no wonder Thai lizards and humans exist so well together.
Today let's look at Mom lizard. Tomorrow we'll watch the teenager and the day after that we'll trace Dad.
Today is Pi Day in the US as Americans express the date with the month first followed by the day of the month. In most other parts of the world Pi Day is celebrated on 22 July or 22/7 (closest value to 3.14159). Here in Bangkok I awaited until 1:59PM before eating the celebratory pizza Pi(e).
BTW, that teen aged lizard in Lumpini park was camera shy. I only got two photos of him (her).
The Dad we'll focus on tomorrow.
On Sunday you saw Mama lizard sunning herself sans hubby and the kid. Yesterday we looked at the Teen who seemed happy* to be away from both parents. Today we trace Dad who seems more interested in sports than in family values. Not only does he take advantage of the jogging path in Lumpini Park ... he also loves doing laps in one of Lumpini's lakes.
* But, aren't all teens that way?
What are we doing and what is in these packages?
Our nearest new hotel neighbor is growing. We already have a dozen major hotels within a 5 minute walk of our condo.
A Bangkok landmark (Ploenchit something-or-Other) has been torn down to make space for a strip mall? Well, that's what it looks like.
All packed, closed up and ready to go.
