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.

Pictures from Bob's School

Bob loves to teach the primary students. It's the best reward to see their effort and smiles!!! When he first got here two years ago, the students were scared to death to try to speak English. The first picture shows 5th grade students trying to practice introductions, the second picture is a group of boys who would rather pose than practice, and the last picture are a group of 3rd graders that have adopted Bob. They always are putting on white powder because of the heat and the fact that there is no such thing as air-conditioning in village schools. Yesterday, Bob witnessed 60 3rd and 4th grade girls get their hair cut and chemical treatment of their hair for head lice, another disadvantage to being poor and living in the tropics!!!
