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.

Young Entrepreneurs

We drink a lot of Diet Coke (although we can only find it at one location 30 miles from village) and bottled water. Carol was walking in the village and found these youngsters searching for metal, cans, and bottles. She brought them to our house where they discovered the mother lode of plastic and aluminum.

I assume, then, that they can cash these in somewhere?

Yes I love it!! RIon and I are hard core recyclers, it went up Jan. 1st in CA to 5 cents for a small can and bottle and 10 cents for the larger ones!
