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 Women's Club English Camp

We were extremely fortunate to be invited to help with the American Women's Club English Camp which was held in Udon Thani this year. Many of the women are married to men who work for the American Embassy in Bangkok or work for large international companies such as Chevron. 145 girls from the northwest Thailand (Issan) were invited to the camp. They had received scholarships to continue their education and represented the "best of the best". The y spent three days and two nights trying to improve their English skills with the American Women's Club, their husbands, and about 8 Peace Corps members.
