Just Hanging Around...

Adam and I decided to have a fun and relaxing Sunday. We decided to try to go to a big garden that is supposed to be beautiful and only open for a couple of months. We walked around that area and finally found it... but cameras wern't allowed in... so we left and decided to come back some time without our cameras....

We did see a bunch of cute monkeys while looking for the entrance gate :) (Adam was a little scared of them though... he was carrying some bread that we had just bought and was a little afraid that the monkeys were going to come and attack him - so he hid his bread in his shirt... he got some funny looks... :)
After all of that, we went to one of our favorite places to eat!! - The Big Chill ;) It was awesome!!
The night before we went to a cool Saturday market and there were tons of bangles... thought I'd include a pic of them :) I love bangles! :)

Those monkeys!! I had a show down with one over some french fries once. I only won one b/c 1. I used Indians to block the monkey's path to me and 2. there was a slab of ice between him and me so he had to slow down! Were you talking about Lhodi gardens?

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!

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…

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). Everyon…
