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.

Parade Time!

The groups proudly march in the parade and periodically stop to pose for pictures. There were photographers from China, Japan, Korea, Germany, Israel, as well as many other countries who converged on the little town of Dan Sai for these photo "ops". We enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. One couple we met stopped many of the mask wearers and made deals to buy the masks. They have a website called "Tribal Trappings" where they offer many Asian works of art. The masks ranged from 1,000 baht to more than 4000 baht ($120) for the elaborately carved masks!
