Tughluqabad

Today we went to the awesome Tughlaqabad Fort. It's REALLY cool! It's a HUGE fort! This was built at the begining of the Tughlaq dynasty in 1321... so it's really old :) It was abandoned in 1327!! Can you imagine doing all that work and then abandoning it just a few years later?! In the pic below is a pic of our awesome tour guides :) Connor and Clayton have started up their business (HUT - High Urban Trekkers) - so if anyone is interested for a tour - I highly recommend it!
The kids in the pic below followed us around for most of it :)
The pic below made me think of Indiana Jones :) This was in the Mausoleum of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq.... I know, long name :) haha!
Here's a pic of Adam, Aashini & me inside the walls of the fort...
They're doing a lot of repairs on the fort right now. I thought the lady below was cute and had a great smile :)
My parents had a lot of fun too :) They had fun playing with the kids too.
It's so fun that there are so many cool things to see in our city! Let's see what tomorrow holds!!

What fun! That one pic is totally Indiana Jones... did you make sure you measured the stick right before finding the spot where you needed to dig?..haha!
We've got some fun stuff around our city too... I wish Isaac would come out so we could show him!

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).
