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.

On the border between Thailand and Cambodia, 1000's of Cambodians are allowed to come across the border and sell their goods. These are scenes of the fish market. It is nearly 100 degrees and the humidity saps all the energy from your body, yet these people work 8 hours a day preparing fish for sale. The smell was nauseating, but these people toil to make a living. Be thankful you have air conditioning and better working conditions.

Wow...they look skilled at getting the fish prepared. Ok...but I have to ask...what are those snake-like things? eel?

Yes, they are eels. They are eaten bones and all (a voice of experience).
