Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

Studying Thai

Carol is studying her Thai with "Faa" in the dining room of our host family. It is a little frustrating since it seems Faa is learning more English than we are learning Thai. Part of the problem is that we are so tired after a full day of classes. When we return, we have the best of intentions to study, but the constant battle with the mosquitoes and the relentless heat and humidity quickly diminish the chances of quality study time. Sometimes at night, we sit in front of the store and visit with relatives and neighbors (usually in the form of charades). The host mother and her daughter are on the left. We practice our Thai, but end up laughing or doing charades.
