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.

Let the Painting Begin!!!

We have been amazed at the conditions our classrooms are in. Most classrooms are open to the elements, which means the weather, insects, and critters take their toll. Carol finally managed to get the school to supply paint -- little did we know that we had to add the dye and mix the paint. Also, we had to improvise on equipment (e.g. paint roller trays cannot be found in our area). The paint went on very uneven and was a lot darker than we imagined. It absolutely looked terrible! But as the paint dried, it dried several shades lighter (the opposite of what we are use to in the U.S.)
