THAILAND: Bangkok - again!

4 hours to kill in bangkok! what to do? we both felt quite stinky and sweaty after 14 hours in a train with only fans...(but we both slept alright).

the train station in bangkok has shower facilities which are ok...but we decided to stay smelly and not use them...
we met some english guys that havent showered for 4 days...and they have been on a muddy trek...NICE.

after some food we decided to relax a few hours in a park so we headed to lumphini park which is really nice! it is located in the financial district of bangkok and as it was friday 5pm we saw lots of people jogging (well, if u can call it like that - some thais just dragged their feet behind them and it looked more like a limp than a proper run...)

and we saw people doing aerobics...what a sight! there were 4-5 instructors and at least 100 people jumping around...

for anyone who wants to escape busy khao san road and smelly exhaust pipes: come to lumphini park - it is really nice, there is a lake and you can rent a boat...a bit like central park in n.y.
