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.

Rainy Season Arrives Early

The monsoons normally arrive in August. May has been an atypical month for Thailand. It has rained every day this month! Our village has received over 30 inches (nearly 80 cm) of rain since May 1 and the farmers have been tilling the rice paddies in preparation for rice planting. The rains typically
come in early afternoon and late afternoon with intense lightning and thunder!
