Fun Finds!

Well, we were in the capital city last week and got to see a lot of fun things... we always have an interesting trip to and from the capital and we get to see interesting things. We always see trucks that are just filled with people! Some of them look like they could fall off at any minute! It always makes me laugh! While in the capital city our friends showed us a new restrauant that really pumped me up!!!! One thing that we have really missed while being here is Mexican food!! I've gotten pretty good at cooking refried beans and other things that are good with Mexican food, but there really isn't a place to go out and get it (we don't have Taco Bell or El Chico here :)) Some restrauants will have Mexican food on their menu, but it has a Masala flavor (the popular seasoning here) and just tastes like the local food. BUT - this cool new restrauant opened up... it's called the Taco Maker and it ROCKS! I got to have my favorite - Nachos!!! and every meal deal comes with a serving of Tater Tots (Adam's favorite!) so we were pumped!! After going to the Taco Maker, we saw this store, and Adam had to have a picture :)

Yum we ate at Taco Maker again last week... we went to the other one and they actually had the ice cream machines working. The avalanche thingies weren't quite Dairy Queen but they were pretty good.

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).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
