Exercising Baboons



We first “discovered” outdoor exercise equipment such as that in the photo above in Santiago, Chile. My kids were immediately hooked on what they refer to as big kid playground stuff. We’ve seen it in parks, playgrounds and on streets in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Thailand and now, in China.

We were walking back to our hostel in Chengdu when we came upon this set of bars and steppers. BigB and CAM (who had just been complaining about walking) dashed over and jumped on the steppers. As they pumped furiously, the little Chinese lady who’d been doing a quiet, calm and gentle work-out looked around as if seeking help from these raucous baboons.

Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more travel-themed Friday photo fun.
