Another day at the Market...

So it seems that we always have to go to the market... so here's some fun pictures from our market experiences this week :)

So, the other day, we bought some chai cups from the guy below... as we were about to leave, we noticed his display table that he has tons of class and ceramic things on.... are on a piece of plywood that is stacked on rocks and bricks... it really didn't look sturdy enough to stack glass things on, but it definitely worked... I thought it was funny...
So then, in one of the markets was this guard... There are guards everywhere... but this guy was from a company that made me laugh... you can see it on his shirt... the "Decent Group"... no, not the Outstanding Group or Amazing Group, just the Decent Group :)
Now, lots of crazy thing have been going on in our city with the government and the shops (closing the shops and things like that).... so this guy got creative :) He has all the shawls that he's selling draped all over his body... looks heavy hunh? Well, he's got a stick under his arm to help hold it up (you can see it at the bottom of the picture...)... Creative!
And, at one of our week's market trips, we got a Christmas tree!!! Yes, it is HUGE... but it's cool :) It makes us smile, so why not? :)

Is that a little sock-monkey hanging on the tree? Are you sure that's a safe thing to do? I hear those things have a rare form of In-Grown Stockingholm Rabies (IGSR). You better be careful around that thing! I hope you have a nice rabid-free holiday.

Don't forget: livin' life on the edge a.k.a. livin' la vida loca (en espanol) has its breath-taking views, warm tingly feelings, and awesome wind-blown hair effect. But keep in mind that the winds of change from the areas beyond the edge (you know, on the edge of the life your livin' on the edge) are coming to blow Rabies from that sock monkey into your life, causing heartbreak that can only be compared to the feeling when Blossom got canceled or that time when gas prices exceeded a dollar.

Anyway, Merry Christmas.

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).
