Kumar Visit :)

Yesterday the Kumars came to visit us :) If you're new to my blog... the Kumars are the family that we lived with for our first year here in M-town. They've been really wanting to come see Aashini, so they drove 3 hours to come and visit us :)
We hung out and chatted, ate and had fun :)
And, of course played some fooseball :) ( I still can't remember how to spell it)
And of course they came to see Aashini
It was sooo great to see them :)
And yet another picture...
Aashini really liked her aunt Mona :)


Yay! Glad they got to come see you:) Did they ask why she doesn't have any hair? Babies here are born with TONS of hair so I know kids with no hair (or a little bit of light colored hair like Aashini) are probably an interesting sight to them:)

That's so sweet of them to have driven down to see y'all. What did you make for lunch??

Super hairy? Hmm... I can identify with that! The first time I noticed Collin's back in the hospital I was a little concerned! It must come with the territory- literally!! How sweet that they were able to come for a visit. It looks like it was lots of fun! :-)

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). Everyon…
