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.

A Typical Meal at Home (Where's the Beef?)

This is a typical meal at home (except there is usually rice instead of noodles). We have a steady diet of vegetables, rice, and fruit. A delicacy is crickets which Bob's co-teacher buys for him. Bob entered the Peace Corps weighing 186 pounds. He now weighs 164 pounds. He probably eats as much as he did in America but there is little fat in the diet. He will admit that he gets cravings for pizza or tacos, but the cravings are not as frequent as when he first arrived.
A few of the volunteers have lost 40-60 pounds and have hopefully learned a new way of eating!

We eat a lot of bananas, pineapple, oranges, and fruit that there is no English name. As far as vegetables, it's tomatoes, cucumbers, and strange leafy plants that grow in the ditches yet are very tasty.
