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.

Jackfruit



One of our favorite fruits (chop maak tii soot) is jackfruit. It grows to the size of a watermelon and when it is cut open, fleshy structures (each containing a seed) are found. It is incredibly sweet (aroy maak!).
The site at the bottom is where we held an English camp for teachers three months ago. We stayed in cabins, located near a large reservoir, for three days.
