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.

Craftsman: Mask Maker

Many of the masks for the Peetaa Kon Festival are very elaborate and are designed by craftsmen. The top of the mask is a "huad" made from a traditional woven bamboo container normally used for steaming rice. The face is from a coconut leave sheath, while the nose is carved from soft wood.
