MeRRy ChRisTmaS!!!! whoo hoo!

MerRy CHrisTmAs!! We've been gearing up for Christmas here! Today we did a lot of cooking and shopping to get ready for Christmas!! Tomorrow (Christmas Eve) we're taking the train to M-town for Christmas Eve! We're excited to see people that we haven't seen since moving to the capital! It will be fun :)

Today I got henna done on my hands for Christmas :) I always like to get mehendi done :) There are definitely some scary Santas here. This is one we ran into today...
What's funny about this one (besides the obvious) is that he's wearing stockings on his hands!! It's so funny because he was hired to stand out front of this little shop and hand out little toffees (candies)... the problem was, he had to reach his hand in this tiny bag and pull out one toffee for each child! ALL WITH THE STOCKINGS ON HIS HAND! Hahaha - it was hilarious! Here is is giving Adam a toffee :)

MeRrY ChrIsTmAs everybody!! Hope you guys have Rockin' Christmases!! You guys ROCK!!

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).
