Dreams come true
By Sabine Eastham, Director
International Student Programs/Lindsey Wilson College.
About one month ago, when we picked up our new international students from the airport, I asked everyone if they had a bucket list of things to do and experience while in the U.S.
One student in particular, Parisa Rachdanone from Bangkok, Thailand, did not have to think to long... "I want to see snow"... And yesterday, our Kentucky weather finally delivered as we had something of a winter wonderland.
You see, Thailand does not have snow. There are some reports of snow in Thailand during its winter in late 1955. Thailand's cold season is generally from November to February with temperatures in the mid 60s F.
So visit Thailand for great food, beaches, numerous islands, martial arts and its many beautiful temples, wonderful festivals like the Khao Phansa candle festival, celebrating the Buddhist monks three-month period where they do not leave the monastery and much more. But if you want to partake in winter sports, Thailand is not the place.
Parisa is a RTSM (Recreation Tourism Sports Management) Major and part of our women's tennis team.
