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.

Floating Flower Pots

Many villagers spend all day making these flower floats to celebrate Loi Krathong. A candle and incense sticks are placed in the middle of the "flower pot". These three girls wanted their picture taken so we obliged. Families stop by and pay 20 baht (about 50 cents) for one float and place them on the waters of the reservoir in the village to show respect for the spirits of the water.
