Monkeys & Snow Cones

Yesterday we were at the north part of the Capital. We went all around the universities up there. It was great fun and we saw a BUNCH of monkeys :)
At one point, our cycle driver stopped by the monkeys, pulled out some roti (flat bread) and fed the monkeys :) It was funny to watch them eat it :)
This baby monkey (below) was too cute - I just had to include him :) His mom was very protective and ran over to attack our cycle when she saw me taking a picture.
In an awesome market by the universities, there was a snow cone man... they area all over this country, but I don't think I've ever taken a picture of one... so, for your viewing enjoyment - THE SNOWCONE STAND. (but if you come to visit... DON'T get a snowcone... If you do, then you will probably call it a "Giardia Cone")

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).
