Funny Things... again...

Well, we're here in B'lore... but we've been in meetings most of the time that we've been here, so we don't have tons of pictures from this trip, BUT we have had a lot of fun and have seen some funny things :) One thing that is fun about being down south is that there are Coconut Trees!! Everyone has had fun trying to climb them :) Adam hasn't made it up to the coconuts yet... I think it's the "trying to figure out how to get down" thing that keeps him from going higher... for some reason, you can't go down the same way you go up... so he has a lot of "tree burns" from sliding down :) There is a LOT of traffic down here in B'lore... the other day we saw this funny little car driving in traffic... now, you may see these from time to time in America... but this is the first one we have seen here and it was sooo funny to see it in the traffic with the other cars :) It's amazing how many people they could put in that car!! If you look closely at the pic below, you can see the driver guy smiling really big... he just loved that I was taking a picture of his car :)
We were at a store and saw this T-shirt that said: "Beauty is in the eye of the bearholder"... hmmm... ok.... well, we thought it was so funny, we bought it... :) why not? :) (I'll have to post a picture later of one of us wearing it :)We saw this on the corner of the street by our friend's house... we thought it was hilarious!! (we have no idea what it means, but...) VOTE for TRACTOR everybody!!

OK, so I just learned what "vote for tractor" means... it's for non-literate people... they associate put a symbol like a tractor with the political cannidates, so non-literate people can vote...
BUT it's kinda funny that they put "vote for tractor" in a literate form... hahha ok, anyway :)

Andrea, you left out the part when I grabbed a handful of coconuts and busted a double back-flip off of that tree. Then I spiked the coconuts and won the superbowl. Why didn't you write about that?

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).
