Winter in the Capital

Before I came here I didn't think it would get very cold here.... It can get up to 135 degrees in the summer, so there's no way it can get cold! Well, I was wrong... for a Florida girl, it can get pretty cold here :) During the day right now it can get up to 65 or 70 degrees but at night it's been about 40 degrees...

So, that may not sound like it's that cold... and outside it feels great! - but inside it can be really cold! Our houses don't have any insulation (only concrete/brick walls) and the floors are made of marble.... and that can make for a chilly house!

Aashini LOVES to be warm! We have a little space heater that can heat up a room really well, and we usually turn it on at night to heat up the room before we go to bed....
Well, ever since we've taken Aashini home from the hospital, she has HATED diaper changes... she will scream and cry through them! Well, a couple of weeks ago, we were changing her diaper and she got the whole changing area on our pack-n-play really wet, so we moved her to the mat we keep in our diaper bag and changed her on the floor... and since the floor is so cold, Adam turned the heater on her.... That was one of the best discoveries! She slept through the diaper change! She loves the heater!!! Now we use it for all the diaper changes and she loves it!!!

Here's a pic below:

Haha Aashini looks so cute next to the heater! I've held Hazel over our radiator thing a few times and she quiets down real fast. These houses are just so stinkin' cold!!

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).
