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.

It's Off to Work I Go!!!

The is no school in April because it is too hot. We planned lessons (a new concept for our teachers) for week and now that the"bit term" (semester break) is over, we are finally ready for our first day of teaching!! Carol rides her bike to one of her schools (4 km) and Bob walks 1 km. Sometimes it's a delicate balancing act for Carol as she straps on her backpack and secures a basket of teaching materials above her rear tire. We have definitely discovered the importance of drinking plenty of water. It's very easy to dehydrate in temperatures near 100 with humidity in the high 90's.

Look at that smile!!!! Retirement and adventure all combined into one!
