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.

Everything is Working Out Alright!



The instruction on how to use a squat toilet is coming in "handy". Actually, we're getting use to it by now. Reminder, you don't sit on it, you squat on it! The hard part is the scarcity of toilet paper in Thai restrooms. Actually, toilet paper is found in many Thai homes, but it sits on the dining table and serves as napkins. To use the paper to wipe your rear would be considered wasteful when you have a large bucket of water and your left hand. It sort of cuts out the middle man.
