15/20.- Bangkok, Lumping Park


Lumpini Park is Bangkok's main park. It's here you can see people eating, jogging, strolling and practicing Tai Chi. It's also here you can see the famous statue of King Rama IV, the king of "The King and I," all versions of which are banned in Thailand. True he had a lot of wives (35) and a lot of children (83), but he was a progressive thinker, who spoke eight languages, was an expert astronomer and introduced major reforms to modernize his country. Before becoming king, he was a monk and therefore celibate. For 27 years. Talk about feast or famine!
