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.

Thai Wedding

My co-teacher got married and we were invited to an intimate ceremony inside the living room of her house. Small wreaths of flowers were placed on the heads of the bride and groom and were connected by a string to represent a unity of their spirits. Guests tied string around their wrists as a symbol of good health, long life, happiness, and good luck. Afterwards, we were invited to take a picture with them. We wish Rewadee a long, happy marriage. She is a wonderful person who is beautiful in body and mind. We will miss her!!!
