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.

Ancient Ruins in Thailand

These ruins date back to 1100 A.D. They were established by Cambodians and represent a giant calendar. There are six doors and when the sun can be seen through all six doors, it is the first day of spring or the first day of fall. Although Thailand is predominantly Buddhist, the ruins were erected by people who practiced Hinduism.
If you click on the last photo and enlarge it, you will see Bob and Carol.
