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.

Giant Vegetation

Thailand has a growing season that is 365 days long (366 during a leap year)! We are amazed at the size of the insects and the vegetation. The bamboo in the bottom picture is well over a 100 feet tall. I'm not positive about the species of tree. It may be a banyan tree. It's circumference reminds us of a Giant Sequoia. Even though Thailand gets a lot of rain, it is mainly concentrated during August to November. The other 8 months are "bone" dry and it amazes us that the vegetation remains so lush.
