THAILAND - I've Got A Big Story Here
Reversing their traditional roles, Robin and Julia switch beats as they head to northern Thailand. Julia looks into a Canadian-run Thai kickboxing school, taking a lesson in hard knocks, while Robin joins two very different cooking schools, succumbing to a chili eat-off. At a unique elephant reserve, both writers get their kicks in the world of "voluntourism."
