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.

Elephant Ride




Carol often talked about things she wanted to do before she died. One was to join the Peace Corps (accomplished) and another was to ride an elephant. She finally got her wish today. We road a 42 year-old female through the jungles of Northern Thailand! The first pictures show the elephants bathing and then the trainers "detailed" the elephants before we began our "elephant trek".
