Sawatdee, Ka! This is Acharn Cat, instructor for the 2018 Global Change, Communities and Families in Thailand course. I’m excited to introduce 14 University of Minnesota students to an amazing country and culture over the three weeks we will be in the country. I am especially looking forward to getting to hearing students’ perspectives as they meet people and experience the culture. Stay tuned as students post their pre-departure thoughts, then continue to blog as our journey unfolds.
