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 Soap Bubbles

One of the stations at the English Camp was "Soap Bubbles". Words like "big", "float", "soap", "bubble", "string", "straw", "put in", "take out" and of course "oooohhh, aaahhhh" were taught. The ingredients were distilled water, Dawn Soap sent to us by Carol's mom (because the soap in Thailand is too diluted), and glycerin. Bob went to 5 pharmacies in Bangkok before he finally obtained the glycerin. The question, "Mii glycerin chai mai, krup?" was met with a bottle of "Listerine" or rectal suppositories. The students were very adept at making the bubbles!
