    Over the past years, the Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School has had a special guest, Randy Nadler, come in to give a presentation. This presentation is made possible by the Nemaha Central Parent/Teacher Organization. This is the fourth year that Mr. Nadler has come to NC. In the previous years he went to Germany, Italy, and Greece. This year Mr. Nadler continued his visits to foreign countries, exploring the friendly and fun-loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic Thailand.

    The official name of Thailand is Kingdom Thailand, which means “Land of the Free.” The common language there is Thai. The form of money they have there is Thai Baht. The population in 2016 was estimated to be around 68.86 million people. About 90% of the people that live there are Buddhist, but about three million Muslims live in the south near the border with Malaysia. The deep forests are home to tigers, elephants, wild ox, leopards, cobras, and crocodiles.

    In all the other years, he has had a guide and he usually traveled by himself. This year though, he brought along his two daughters, Maddi Nadler and Keely Nadler. Also he brought with him, Winai Nilubonpaiboon, his guide and interpreter and Sun Sanyasamphan his driver. In the presentation, Mr. Nadler showed the students, Bangkok which is Thailand’s capital, home of the Grand Palace and Wat Pho’s immense Reclining Buddha. The Bridge over the River Kwai was one of the must see sights since it was build during the World War II era when the Japanese occupied Thailand.  Located in the Chiang Mai Province to the north where mountains are prominent are the following, The White Temple, The Golden Triangle, farmland and villages. The Long-Necked Villages where women wear heavy brass coils around their necks are Mae Hong Son’s most touted and most controversial. Mr. Nadler went to a lot of markets, markets on train tracks, and street markets. Mr. Nadler went to Tiger Kingdom, went swimming with elephants, visited tropical islands, and Monkey Beach. The students anticipate his presentation each year and look forward to hearing about his new destination.

    A huge thanks to the PTO for bringing Thailand to the students. Also thank you Mr.  Nadler for coming another year to NC. We hope that Mr. Nadler will come back again with another adventure.

    Garrett Huerter said, “I can never wait until the time comes when I can see another presentation by Mr. Nadler. He always has an interesting topic. Thailand has been one of my favorite presentations he has showed us.”

    Savanah Rogers said, "I really enjoyed the presentation. It was really interesting and I wish it would have lasted longer."
