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 Family Station Wagon and a Few More Surprises

Bob's first day brings a few surprises! The first is the means of transportation. There are 4 children on the motorcycle with mom. We have even seen 5 people and 1 baby! And we Americans thought we were ingenious when we crammed 20 people in a VW Bug!!!!

Looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen....Is there a speed limit there?

There seems to be no rules. Double yellow solid lines (even on curves) means "Go ahead and make this two-lane highway a three-lane highway. Stop signs mean "GO!". There is also no such thing as "pedestrian right-of-way". Get out of the way!!!!

Gee...if they did wear helmets, there wouldn't be enough room for all of them to sit on the cycle...!
