Random Stuff :)

There are TONS of places here that will cut your hair :) Most of them are "haircutting salons" but every-once-in-a-while you'll see a "hair cutting saloon" - those crack me up... but this one in the pic below REALLY cracked me up... our friend Thomas that lives here sent us this picture and I just had to post it :) It's the "HARSH HAIRCUTTING SALOON" - hahaha!! Harsh is a very common name here... but when I think of harsh... well, that's definitely not a name I'd want to see when I'm about to get my hair cut :) - do you want a "harsh haircut?" haha!Today we were at a market getting some fruit and other fun stuff... and there were some guys doing some "construction" type work... This guy had a cool hat (the yellow one)... it's a regular construction hat, but has that round thing on top so that he can easily carry things on his head... I thought that was pretty cool :)
We also saw this guy at the same market... it was pretty hot out and he found a cool place to rest with his cart :) haha!
This pic (below) is a picture of our mailman's bike... when we get mail - letters or packages - we get it via this bicycle :) It's not a very good picture, but it's fun to see how the mail gets to where it's going :)

HAHA! All of the hair places here are saloons:) I always feel so rebellious getting my haircut!

Ha! I thought of one thing when I saw that first pic- Dr. Harsh or was it Harsch? Oh well, random memories. Those pics are great! I love that hat! That would be so helpful here when Eden wants to be carried around and I need an extra hand or two!!

the hat looks like my mom's yellow collinder... not so much like a construction hard hat. Kinda funny.

Just as "jeremy's fam" wrote, I was going to say that man's hat looks like a collander we had once!

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).
