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.

Teacher Appreciation Day



Each year, schools across Thailand honor their teachers. For three hours, speeches and blessings are given as the students sit on concrete slabs. During the final hour, students individually approach the teachers, kneel at their feet, bow three times and present flowers to the teachers. This display was very touching and unlike anything we had ever experienced in America.
