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.

Shopping for Fruit



We travel by song taao (two benches in a truck) to the big city to go to the market. It takes about an hour to get there but the selection of food is much more than we can find in our little villafe.The fuit selection is wonderful. The large pink-red fruit (with the 30 baht sign) is our favorite. It's called "dragon's eye" and grows on a plant that looks like a cactus with long spindly arms (looks like a plant with "dreadlocks").

That market looks delightful. It is a far cry from my local Ralphs! I bet everything tastes so wonderful and is so fresh...

We would love to bring some back but don't think we would be allowed to bring it into California.
