Elephants Again! (and a poll)

Hey! Today was had some fun elephants visit our house :) These guys come around and ask for money or food for them and their elephant... We came out and fed the elephant a banana and Adam got to get on him and ride down the street for $1 :) It was fun :)

Adam loved it :) It made his day :)

OK, I added a poll to the left side of my blog... (our super cool friend tim gave us the idea)... so the other day I went to the glasses store and was trying to ask if they made perscription sunglasses... there's no Hindi for that (that we've been able to figure out) but there are specific English words you have to use in order to get the correct answer... when I asked if they had perscription sunglasses, he said no... we finally figured out the right thing to say and he said yes... check out the poll to see what you think was the right answer :) ROckon!!

Apparently K has already voted, but I would choose "mirrors with degrees." It sounds stupid enough, yet semi-logical enough, to be the right thing in India.

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).
