Oh No!!!!

So, our favorite place that we shop is at the PVS mall... It's the only "western-type" place in our whole city... there's nothing anything like it anywhere else near us...there's a store in the mall that is the closest thing we have to Wal-Mart... it has all the basic stuff that we need all in one store!! (so we don't have to go to a million stores :)
Well, one day, while we were up in the mountains we got a TON of phone calls!! Everyone was telling us that there was some kind of short-circuit... and our PVS mall had pretty much burned up.... It was a very sad thing :( Our favorite store is GONE!!! :(
Well, ends up, that the whole mall wasn't damaged... so our two western restrauants (Pizza Hut & McDonalds) might be opening in the next couple of days :) Which would be awesome!! I"ll keep you posted :)
WHile we were up in the mountains, I got an email from my sister telling me that she sent me a postcard from Chicago, but she forgot to put the postage on it... Well, when I got home, guess what was waiting for me??? HER POSTCARD!!! How crazy is that?? hahaha awesome!

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).
