Volunteers :)

This week we've had an awesome volunteer group here from Colorado! They are a way-cool group! I haven't gotten to hang out with them as much as I would have wanted (b/c I've been sick - yuck!) but the times I have hung with them have been cool!

Today they went to an orphanage here in the Capital. All of these pics are courtesy of Adam (go Adam!).
They got to meet a lot of people and hang out with a lot of kids! They also provided them a special meal and played with them :)
I think they said that the week before they left Colorado, it snowed! Now they're doing all sorts of stuff in 110 degree weather - and they are rockin it!

Sorry about the sickness...it'll be worth it in the end fo' sho!
You should keep a countdown til B-day (baby day) or at least when you THINK Bday might be... either that or a tally of weird foods you crave- ya know, a 3am craving for dahl.

Good idea :)

Or you could have a running tally of people's guesses as to whether it's blue or pink... or a countdown to the end of the first trimester (and hopefully no more sickness!)

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).

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…
