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.

It's Off to Work We Go!


This is the most common form of transportation in our village. It is basically a tractor motor mounted on a wheel with long handlebars
and a trailer bed attached to it. These men are on their way to the rice fields but stopped while two other workers went to convenient stores to get refreshments. By the way, Thailand is the number one exporter of rice! In case you thought it was China, the keyword is exporter.
