DCM Haymond joined BMA Car Free Day

On September 18, 2016 Deputy Chief of Mission Peter M. Haymond, Mrs. Dusadee Haymond, and Management Officer Eric Hansen joined the Bangkok Car-Free Day bicycle ride around Rattanakosin Island. The group from U.S. Embassy joined several other members of the Bangkok Eco Capitals Forum including the Embassy of Canada, the Embassy of Germany, the Delegation of European Union to Thailand, and the United Nations Environmental Programme for a 9km ride through the historic section of the city. Participation in the Car-Free Day activity is part of the Eco Capitals Forum’s “Diplomatic Missions and International Institutions Environmental Performance and Sustainability Pledge” with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), to help create Environmental Awareness by reducing our carbon footprint through the use of public transportation, walking, or riding bicycles in Bangkok.
