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.

Children of the Earth


We have a field behind our house. This is a view of a family that toils in the field for 8 hours per day, removing weeds with the simplest of tools. The field is owned by our landlord who hires people to tend to the fields. We are not sure if the are Thai or Cambodians, but we do know one thing .... they are truly the "children of the earth".

You have an amazing camera - what kind do you have. I'm looking into buying one before I travel to Switzerland next week. Enjoy reading all your post/pictures.
