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.

Eating Healthy!!!

A dear friend of ours requested that we post more pictures of the food we eat. So this is for Ron. We eat a lot of vegetables. There is no grease on the food we eat. The only additives are soy sauce or oyster sauce. We also

eat a lot of fruit. The street vendors are always selling papaya, mangoes, bananas, and kanoon (jackfruit). The bottom picture shows a closeup of the jackfruit which is the size of a watermelon and grow on trees. When opened, they reveal, thick yellow structures that contain seeds. The vendors remove the seeds and sell the thick sweet morsels for about $1.00 per kilogram. The are immensely sweet!!!! Bob's favorite fruit is kanoon and dragon's eye (gaao mung gaan).
