Fooseball Table via Bicycle 65+ miles!

We got our Fooseball Table! Whoo hoo!! We got a phone call the day before yesterday from the store in M-town. They said that they were dispatching our fooseball table at that time and it should reach us in about 4 hours! Then they said something about it coming by rickshaw... Rickshaw? Adam asked to be sure, and the guy said, yes, he will be coming from M-town to Delhi via Bicycle Rickshaw!! That's at least 65 miles!!!!!!!! For those of you that can't picture what this rickshaw looks like, see the pic below:

An old bicycle that has NO GEARS with a cart attached, used to manover through insane traffic on the road from M-town to the capital. Crazy!! Well, needless to say, it didn't take 4 hours... it takes us 3 hours to do that trip while in a car!! The guy left around 2:00pm and arrived at our house at 4:00am (14 hours later!!)!!! He was very nice though and waited until 6:30am to ring our doorbell...
This guy wasn't a young wipper-snapper either! He looked pretty old! I was definitely impressed with him! He helped us carry our boxed-up fooseball table upstairs, we gave him a nice tip and a bottle of water and he got back on his bicycle and pedaled away....

Our upstairs neighbors have a boy that's in 10th grade... he heard about our fooseball table coming up the stairs and he came in and helped Adam put it together (at 6:30am!)... Then they preceeded to play quite a few game before he had to go to school :)

Our house was definitely the party pad yesterday with our new fooseball table!! It's going to be fun :)

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!

Funny Things - Funny Sign :)

The other day Adam saw this clinic.   At first glance it seems pretty normal..... But if you read the sign you'll see that it's a  "MUTATION DIET CLINIC"!!!! hahaha!  Mutation Diet??  What?? Really?  hahaha!  :)  Awesome :)

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).
