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.

We Arrived in Thailand

This has been a goal of ours ever since graduating from college. The process took two years to complete (applications, interviews, and health screenings). We were notified in November, 2005, of our acceptance and told that we would serve in the Southeast Asia area. Later, we found out that the country would be Thailand. Carol retired from her job as Career Development Coordinator with Moreno Valley Unified School District, Bob opted not to teach another semester of anatomy/physiology at Riverside Community College. We arrived in Bangkok on January 13, 2006, with 52 other volunteers in Thailand Group 118 after an 18-hour flight from San Francisco. Thirty Peace Corps Volunteers from Group 117 awaited our arrival and cheered and greeted us. Our heads were spinning from all that had happened in the last two months. Are we crazy or just living out our dream?
