Fun Things and Holidays!

What do you do when you have a can of pineapple that you really want to get into ... but you don't have a can opener?? I wanted to make a smoothie with pineapple and since it's not in season I decided I would use the can of pineapple we had... the only problem is, we don't own a can opener... we have tried buying one... we haven't seen them in any stores and nobody we talk to has any idea what we're talking about... So we went down stairs and asked our neighbor if they had a can opener... they didn't - but she said to open the can, we should use this tool... and she gave us their toe-nail clippers (Yuck!) that had some sort of bottle-opener tool on it... So, we ripped into the can! And believe it or not, nobody got hurt in the process :)
Everybody is gearing up for the holidays... Today is Choti Diwali (Small Diwali)... We visit friends and bring sweets to everyone - It's pretty fun. I'll post some pictures from it tomorrow :)
This is a picture from the market... everyone has their shops all fixed up for Diwali and the streets are all decorated with lights and metalic stuff :)

just so you know...they don't sell can openers here. Thats the next thing you should ask for if someone wants to send you something!!
