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.

Family Reunion: School #4 Visit - Part 1A

Our final school visit brought us to a remote village where few students had seen a "Westerner" other than ourselves. We met with over 100 students under a pavilion where we introduced ourselves and proceeded to prepare for the interviews. We sat down and individually answered their questions as they hurried to the tables where 16 "farangs" sat. During our introductions, a loud crackling thunderbolt hit directly above the pavilion. Was this a "sign"? We certainly hope it was God's drumroll to our introductions and visit.
