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.

Bob's 58th Birthday!!!!

Our host family threw a birthday party for Bob. They invited some of the community college students to join us for a meal and cake. They used something like a fondue and cooked chicken fat in the center and boiled vegetables in the water around the edges. Bob then cut the cake and Carol had to feed him the cake. Each of the students gave Bob a flower, and Faa (in the light blue top) gave Bob a pair of Thai fisherman shorts used to lounge around in after his ap-naam (bath).
This was the first of three birthdays that Bob would celebrate in Thailand and everyone of them was a special gift in a special land.

Happy b'day, Bob! Why does the food remind me of the bone marrow at the fancy restaurant you treated us at in Rancho Mirage? Carol & I wouldn't eat that either! It's a nice honor you were provided this feast, Bob. (Carol, you're a chicken to not eat it!)
