Parenting & Rides...

So the other day I hear a puppy barking like crazy in the alley behind our house... so Adam & I look out there and it's the momma dog with one of her puppies totally terrorizing a rat. It was really funny to watch (at first)... The dogs were terrified of the rat and the rat was just as terrified of the dogs... Eventually the rat died (so that was pretty gross), but it was pretty funny to see the dogs... (OK, so maybe this wasn't the best idea for a blog post....)
I took a couple of pics in traffic the other day... thought I'd share... this guy (below) was taking a smoke break at the red light... (You can't ride a bike and smoke very well...)
These guys were delivering presents... One guy was standing on the back and making sure that the presents didn't fall... the other guy was taking a cell phone break at the light (you can't ride a bike and talk on a cell phone very well)

So, I know this hasn't been the most exciting blog post (I'm just now really getting out of the house again), but Adam did a blog post on stuff on the street the other day and it has some fun pics! Check it out: http://www.southasiarolls.blogspot.com/

Killing rats...a timeless lesson in parenting. What do you think was in those gifts?

Glad to see you are out and about, taking pictures and making comments. When you really think about it, killing rats is a good skill to practice with your kids. There are all kinds of rats out there that they will meet in there growing up years and after. They do need to know how to kill them in their life.

Wow! That first pic was ummm...gross!! I don't know how I would have reacted in real life- But, if you can handle that, then dirty diapers are going to be a cinch!

In Germany, it's illegal to drive and talk on the phone. In fact, there are over 600 different traffic signs here, so I think our culture must be the exact opposite of where you are living. Oh yeah, the only rat I"ve seen here? It was very small and being very efficiently chased by a good German cat, who I"m sure cleaned up after herself in a timely manner. Love the photos and glad to know you are feeling well enough to take some.

Your pictures make me miss India!! (I lived in Delhi for a bit.) So beautiful and such amazing people!

Oh, and I think Indian men can do just about anything while riding a bike... and I think I've seen them do it... yeah, we'll just skip of the rest of that thought...

Pregnant in the searing heat and smog of India. That's sounds like lots of fun. ;) Lifting you up.

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).
