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.

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception


Chanthaburi has one of the largest Catholic churches in Thailand. Part of the reason is Vietnamese escaped their country and came to Chanthaburi because of religious persecution in the 1700's and 1800's. The church is almost 300 years old, but has been rebuilt several times. This structure was dedicated in 1911.
