I probably don't know enough to know what to ask. The 'dot' will be a good one. I really enjoy everything you come up with. So just anything you think of and every thing you see is ok by me.

i have enjoyed your blog for a while. but as you know, i would love to know how you make chai. I have a recipe i use here, but id like to know how you do it. other than that i would really love to know more about the kind of work you all do...
more pics of monkeys! :) haha
i like anything ya'll write about!
I want to know if Indian people are relatively clean people...like use soap when they "wash" their hands, etc. locals here are NOT clean at all!
Aarmel said…
Hmmm...India = clean? That should be an interesting post! :) How about something on temples in your area? (sorry if you've already done one on that!) Umm...or how about a tour of your house? Or a listing of the most famous sites to see while in the Capital?

How hard is everyday life? For instance, what's shopping, cooking, running errands like? How loud is it there? I'd also like to see a photo with as many people in it as possible.

I like Deanna's ideas! Also I like when you post cultural information, because I always learn new things. :)

Thanks for the pic! :-) It makes me smile everytime I see it! Kinda like a reminder of the "Good ol' days!!" Some things never change, like our fun hubbies!
-I always wonder what do you guys eat the most - do you try to make American food or do you go for the local stuff?

Oh, I want to know how to make chai too!

I need to ask this question on our blog too. I just never know what people will find interesting.

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…
