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.

Swearing-In Ceremony


At the end of March, 2006, We worked with our supervisor, two of the four teachers with whom we will be co-teaching and one of the four principals for two days in Bangkok. We have to admit that we were very apprehensive the night that our supervisor (Khun Sura on the left) drove 5 hours to our new village. The support network (fellow volunteers and Peace Corps staff) that we had grown to depend on was immediately severed. To say the least, it was scary!!! Going to sleep in a strange house, and waking up in a strange village in a foreign country without a familiar face put a strange lull on our adventure. Little did we know that we were just beginning the best two years of our lives!!!!!
