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.

Squat and Wash!

This is a view of our bathroom complete with a washing machine! Yes, you stand and squat down on that blue porcelain toilet. You then pour water from a large basin to "flush" away contents. The water pressure is so low to the washing machine that we usually pour water from our large basin into the it to speed the process up! The water from the washing machine empties on the tile floor, so we wash our clothes and the floor at the same time! It's then time to hang the clothes outside and hope that the monsoons hold off while the clothes are outside.

Pretty efficient, when one thinks about it!

On the other side is a large basin for our water. Bob removed a dead rat from it. Must have been thirsty!
