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.

Hotel Accommodations



We occasionally go to Bangkok for Peace Corps business or medical examinations. Bangkok certainly has its share of 5 star hotels. But when you are on a budget of $10-12 per night, any clean place will do. Accommodations are sparse --- bare floors, walls that have not been painted in years, and the only furniture is a bed. Some of the places are backpackers hostels. We meet the most interesting people from all over the world!
