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.

Village Pick-up Truck

In addition to "dtek-dteks" the more affluent villagers have these versions of pick-up trucks which they drive to the city. What was surprising is that in the back of the truck was a brand new 29" color television. When we look in some of the modest homes, the only piece of furniture is a color tv proudly displayed so that everyone outside can see it through the open doorway.There are no chairs, couches, or tables. Everyone sits or lays on the floor to watch tv.

They get about 12 channels using a standard TV antenna.
