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.

American Culture Exchange

After watching the students perform their Thai traditional dances, the Americans demonstrated line dancing and good old rock and roll! The Thai students easily adapted to the American dancing and were quite good. We then had two guests -- Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny who handed out gifts. The girls were so appreciative of the English Camp and we kept urging them to try to speak English everyday. Although these were the best female students in Northwest Thailand (Issan), their speaking skills were very limited. But, it's events like this that break down the barriers and encourage them to keep trying!
