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.

The Lineup

When we got to the pavilion, the students were sitting in desks that had been moved from classrooms. They were anxiously waiting for the foreign visitors. After we introduced ourselves, we invited the students to come up and ask questions. At first, the students were too shy, but once the ice broke, the flood gates opened and we were inundated with questions which we gladly rewarded with gifts the family had brought from home. It was Monday which is "yellow shirt day" in honor of the king who was born on a Monday, so we wore our "2007 Blaisdell Family Thais" reunion t-shirts that Theresa and Kevin brought from North Carolina (also known as Virginia to Bob and Carol).
