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.

A Rice Farm

The monsoons have begun and the rice has been planted! It rains almost everyday from August through November. The area around us is primarily rice fields dotted with small farm houses. This is a typical "Little House on the Rice Paddy".

Does that mean that the insects are worse this time of year?

You cannot leave any doors open. The insects manage to get in our house even with screens on the windows. We can only keep a few lights on at night. Imagine the homes of the villagers which have no screens and large open spaces at the top of the walls!
