Whoa! Nigel & Elvis!

OK, so you never know who you're going to see when you're overseas! Tonight, we were in the night market in Chiang Mai, Thailand... we had just gotten foot massages, and we were walking around and guess who we saw????? NIGEL LYTHGOE! The producer of "AMERICAN IDOL" and "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE".... So, of course, we asked if we could take a picture with him :) He was really nice. It was funny and random to see him here! haha! You never know...
We also saw a Thai Elvis... :)

After you told me about this, I was on major celebrity alert for awhile, but alas, I didn't see one. :( I'm glad it was you who saw NL because I would not have even recognized him!

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).
