MarKet FuN!


We went to a really fun market the other day. The women at this part of the market are considered by some "the best price hagglers in the city" - and let me tell you - they are good!! We went two different days. On the first day we went, I bought a few things and haggled with a woman for a while and still didn't get the price I wanted. We came back a few days later and when she saw me, she remembered me and picked up the exact item we had been discussing a few days before and gave me the exact same price that we had discussed a few days before. (Now, that takes talent because they see tons of people every day and they give different prices to different people, so she was really good). She wouldn't budge on the price, so I moved on... it was really fun :)

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).
