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.

It's off to work I go!!!!!

We live in the country and bike to another site for our language lessons and then into the city to observe the local educational system. We are learning to "bike softly and carry a big stick!" There are thousands of wild dogs in the country, in the city, and at the schools. The dogs are usually quite docile (and undernourished) but the thrill of chasing a person on a bicycle brings the worst out of them. It's definitely an adventure!

Even though the temperature and the humidity are both in the 90's, we must always dress "rip roy" which means Carol in a skirt and Bob in shirt, tie, and slacks. In America, people would think Bob is "spreading the gospel".
