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.

Saying Good-bye to the Parents




Parents came by bicycle, motorcycle, and on foot, but we were surprised to see a busload of parents arrive at the ceremony. They watched the play presented by Bob's students, listened to the speeches and took part in the ceremony by tying strings around our wrists. We only wished our Thai language was better to tell them that
their children are so special and deserve the best that life can offer, but we think we conveyed that in another manner during our two years in the village.
