Whoa! I'm Purple!

Well, today the "colors" came!! Today was the big holiday where people throw colors on each other all morning! You wear really old clothes (ones you don't mind getting ruined) and play (or lock your doors and hide inside :)). We had a lot of fun playing!!
This was our team! It was our end of the street versus the other end of the street! It was so fun! Our team totally won - it was awesome!! It has to be one of the funnies holidays I have ever experienced :)

Hey guys!
I don't know if you remember us but we were some of Bob D's other people. We met a couple times in VA and TX. We are now in Moscow RU. Things are good here. Happened upon your site and was glad to see you all are doing well.

Thinking of you both!

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).
