ThaiLaNd!

Greetings from Thailand!! We got to Chiang Mai, Thailand a couple of days ago :) We're here for our bi-annual visa run and meetings! It's a great break and we're having fun :) Bangkok has a brand new airport and it's AWESOME! It has lots of food places and sleeping places! It's cool! When we were getting food at that airport, we saw this funny Christmas tree! I think they just stuck the top of the tree to the bottom of it, and just left out the middle of it! I thought it was funny!
I saw this sign (below) at the hotel... and every time I see it, it cracks me up!

There's a weekend market on the outside of the hotel/mall that we're staying at. At this weekend market, they have a lot of funny foods! It's awesome! Look closely at the funny foods below:Here's a close-up... yum! Fried crickets!!
And Thai's love their seafood! Look at all that squid!! whoa! Anyone want me to ship some home to you? haha :)
One of my favorite things about Thailand is getting foot massages! Here's Adam enjoying one :)
And last, but not least... we saw a funny sign! Anyone want to go to the FATTY Restaurant? hahaha!!

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).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
