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.

Restaurants - Thai Style

Almost all restaurants outside of Bangkok are the outdoor type. You and a host of insects sit down to a wonderful selection of foods. We are eating fish, chicken legs (complete with claws), and sticky rice (kao niao). Most of Thailand eats jasmine rice, but the people of Isaan eat a different variety which has the consistency of oatmeal. You wash your hands by using buckets of water over outdoor sinks. This restaurant featured slices of lime to help remove the smell of the fish. Our supervisor, Khun Sura, is shown washing his hands after the meal.
