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.

Every other Saturday, we get on our bikes and ride 5 miles to a large reservoir. There are three "raan ahaans" (restaurants) side by side above the reservoir that offer a spectacular view and a cool breeze. We get some sodas, a bucket of "naam kang" (ice), some "mon farang todt" (potato chips) and "phad pahk ruam sai gai" (rice, vegetables, and chicken) and enjoy the solitude. Carol is standing with one of the owners. Thailand has a communal culture --- if one restaurant doesn't have what we want, they run to the other restaurant and prepare it for us!
