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.

Saying Goodbye to the Peace Corps Trainees

In the late afternoon of the first day, we had to say goodbye to the trainees. We taught them a song, "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" and it was lead by a talented trainee who brought his guitar. When we were finished, the 13 Peace Corps trainees shook hands with the students close to the front of the stage and started to leave . The 120 students immediately got up and formed two lines for the trainees to walk through to allow the trainees to shake hands with everyone. By the way, shaking hands is not a custom in Thailand.
