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.

The Introduction of an American Game

The schools frequently hold two-day camps for the students. Classes are cancelled and students bring pillows and mats to stay overnight in the classrooms. The teachers hold stations that all the students attend throughout the day. Bob introduced frisbee. The students had never tossed a frisbee before. Words taught were "throw", "catch" "one hand", two hands", "behind the back", and "under the leg". After they got use to the throwing and catching techniques, they selected one team member to sit in a chair and try to catch the frisbee thrown by the other team members, without leaving the chair, to score points. Notice, that even on camp days, the students still have to wear their uniforms!
