OK, I added a poll to the left side of my blog... (our super cool friend tim gave us the idea)... so the other day I went to the glasses store and was trying to ask if they made perscription sunglasses... there's no Hindi for that (that we've been able to figure out) but there are specific English words you have to use in order to get the correct answer... when I asked if they had perscription sunglasses, he said no... we finally figured out the right thing to say and he said yes... check out the poll to see what you think was the right answer :) ROckon!!

The problem is the SPIDERS!!! For some reason, they just LOVE our house!! Everyday I have to go around with my special hand-broom thing and kill spider's nests in our house ... Yesterday I got 21 spider's nests and today I got 19! WHoa!! Those are the small spiders... but our bathroom seems to attract these HUGE spiders! My first experience with the big spiders was right before Thanksgiving.... We had come back from a trip and well, after using the restroom... realized that there was a spider under the seat... luckily it was squashed.... but it made me think of that urban legand with the spider under the toilet seat.... anyway, check out the pic below....
So, now that it's gotten hot again... I've been seeing these big spiders in my house again!! Ahhh Nice! Anyway - Just thought I'd share my spider fun :)
On a lighter note :) . . . one of the dogs that lives on our street recently had 6 puppies, and they sleep in the garden across the street... they love to sleep in the pots b/c it's much cooler :) - they're cute... thought I'd share this pic :)

Here he is with his banana cart. The bananas are covered up because it is really hot outside and he doesn't want them to ripen too early :)
When we got bananas yesterday, he gave us this special banana :) It's a double-decker banana :) Hahaha :) It's banana twins!! OK, I thought it was funny :)

During the week, they had a puja every morning and it was with only their immediate family. This time, other family members, neighbors and friends were invited. They had the fire burning in their house!! It was sooo smokey - it was killing my eyes :)
This was a part of their puja materials.... I thought it was very interesting looking....

This is a pic from a gas station :) I guess these buckets are for if there is a fire :) They were empty though :) haha They have these inside the movie theatre also :)
This is a common sight on the road... (although this truck is pretty empty)... everyone just piles in and heads to town :)
This is what our "trash trucks" look like :) A guy comes by our house on a rickshaw and takes our trash and puts it in a bag like this on his rickshaw :) Cool hunh?
This pic makes me laugh :) The back of the white car says: "Power Brake - Keep Distance" :) Then you see all the other vehicles up ahead... the coolest is the chicken truck with the guys on top :)
