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.

Fabulous Wats (Buddhist Temples)


Part of our assignment is to understand the culture in addition to learning to speak the language and,in turn, teach English (sawn pasaa Angrit). We visit Wats as part of our training! There are probably about 30,000 wats in Thailand so we should be quite busy. If you "left click" the photos you might recognize us in the photos. We are astonished at the beauty and the serenity of these temples. Some of the ceremonies seem to have some common threads with the Catholic church.
