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.

Taste Test

At the English Camp we taught "salty", "sour", "bitter", "sweet", "spicy", and "bland". Test solutions were made to teach the different tastes and then actual foods were sampled. Bob made the test solution for bitter using quinine which achieved some interesting reactions!!! The students were asked to describe the tastes of the foreign foods using English words. For many of the students, it was the first time they had ever sampled peanut butter, jelly, and jelly beans!
