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.

Interview a Farang!

Everytime the is an event in Thailand, teachers cancel classes and give their students an assignment: "Interview a Farang". The students have prepared questions and actively seek out anyone who looks like they speak English. Fortunately for them, most Europeans speak English since few Americans are encountered. We always praise them and encourage them to speak English. They usually take a picture as proof that they found English English speakers.
