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.

The pictures should give you an idea about our village. One picture is the gas station. Most people drive motorcycles so it doesn't take much to fill the tank! You have a choice of three grades and it's based on the honor sytem. Fill up first, then pay. The other picture is the post office! It is about a mile from our house. Although, we don't have a mailbox, the postman delivers our mail right to our doorstep. He just sees English writing and knows it goes to us! When we do take the time to bicycle to the Post Office to mail a letter, we usually have to wake him up because he is sound asleep on the tile floor!

Gasoline is sold by the liter. So if we do a little math it is $2.80 a gallon as of June 25, 2006.
