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.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?


Well, it wasn't Sydney Poitier!!! While we were eating last night (barefoot), this centipede crawled next to Carol's feet. Needless to say, Carol was freaked out for an hour!!! Our host family killed it and then explained that this species of centipede is the largest in the world. They told us that the bite is deadly, which made the thought of going to bed more of an adventure than it has ever been (since we sleep on the floor). Luckily it wasn't offered as an after-dinner delicacy.

Wish I was there to see her reaction. I'll bet it was pretty good. That thing is huge. I think you should mail it to Linz.
