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.

Tacos in Thailand

One of the goals of Peace Corps is to share our culture with the country we are serving. Carol decided to fix tacos for the staff at both of her schools. Finding the tomatoes and lettuce was no problem. However, we had to travel to Bangkok to find salsa and cheese in a store frequented by farangs (foreigners). Thais do not eat cheese (or drink milk) and have no use for salsa. The taco shells were another story! (see below)

Hey mom and dad. We are here @ the Pratts for x-mas dinner. We have both gram's and carl here too. Your tacos look good but not as good as Dorthy's potatoes were today. Happy Holidays. Love the kids.
