Well, we left Chiang Mai and headed down south to Bangkok for our vacation :) ... We've had a lot of fun :) We've seen a lot of things and traveled so many different ways... so far we've traveled by airplane, boat, water taxi, songtao, tuk tuk, bus, sky train, metro... well, it seemed like a lot to me :) While in Bangkok, we got to go to the top of the "world's tallest hotel" (that's what the pic from the top is from)...At the top of the hotel, Adam and I got to play ona rickshaw - it was really fun :) We visited the Siam Aquarium... it's supposed to be one of the biggest aquariums in Asia... It was neat... there were all kids of crazy fish!!

We took a boat up and down one of the big rivers in Bangkok and went to see some old buildings and some other things... We got to see the largest "reclining buddah" in Thailand... it was HUGE, it's hart to imagine any bigger than that!! Anyway, we had fun! Right now we're in Pattaya and it's not so great of a city, so we're going to try to bus and boat on down the coast to a cool island :) We'll keep you posted :)

You guys ROCK!!!

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…
