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.

Introductions at Carol's High School

Carol's co-teacher presents Rion and Anne Marie at Carol's school. All 400 students were gathered at the school's stage area. All the girls screamed when Rion was introduced, but he told them that he already had a "girlfriend". We enjoyed a presentation of a play (in English), traditional dancers in beautiful costumes (some of the "beautiful girls" were actually boys), and a rock band. We then entertained them with a few games. We introduced our family and then made students come up. Bob would say, "Shake hands with my wife." The first student to run to the correct person received a small prize. We then encouraged them to come up and ask a question in English.
