Fish Market!

Well, this may not be the most exciting post I've ever done, but the other day we were walking around and stumbled on a big FISH MARKET! Now, you may be thinking - ok, so what's the big deal... well, first off, there are very few meat markets in our area of the Capitol... not much demand for them... and second of all... we aren't really near any big bodies of water (and definitely not near a water source I would want to get fish from)...
Anyway... this market was interesting because of two things... one - the fish... and two - it was all in another language!! It wasn't in Hindi, but a language from the East of our country! It's like we stepped into another country... well... maybe not, but it was still cool :)
There were fish scales all over the ground and fish parts everywhere! It was really different to see :) Anyway, just thought I'd tell you about the fun festive fish market :)

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). Everyon…
