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.

Karen Village I

The Black Karens make their living off the land. The men are hunters and the women gather fruits and vegetables. This village is so remote that no electricity is available. Thaksin (the former prime minister that was forced from the country by a bloodless coup) provided solar panels to the village through a company he owned. They do not have the luxury of a refrigerator since it would drain the reserve supply of electricity but they do have television!
