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.

Chanthaburi is a 4-hour bus ride from our village. Our bus ride featured an open door and no air-conditioning. We wanted the door closed but they explained it was broken. It is a beautiful city known for its fruit orchards and gem trade. There are hundreds of shops which buy rubies and sapphires from traders who travel to Chanthaburi from surrounding countries.
