Old City Fun ;)

So, a few days ago, we went around the Old part of the city with our friends the Highs. They know all sorts of cool places to go and see in that area, so it was fun :)
They had one of those "Flat Stanleys" so they were taking some fun pictures with him as they went :)
I caught this guy picking his nose :) haha!
Here's Adam with Aashini in the depths of the old part of the city :) I thought this monkey was making a HILARIOUS face :) haha!
We saw some really fancy decorated temples. It was really interesting and fun :)
And... at the end of the day Aashini had her first Metro ride :)

Awesome shot of the temple! Nat. Geographic worthy! We forgot about flat stanley! We need to send another one of those around... our first attempt got lost somewhere in postal land :(
you rock!

Cool pics. What cracks me up is not only is that guy picking his nose (big time) but he looks like he is tied up too? What in the world is that all about? LOL!

I can't believe you caught that monkey grin on camera! amazing.

I'm glad I am not the only one who noticed the nose guy all tied up- that's odd! The pics are so neat! I really like the first one and the one of the temple- so cool. How did Aashini like the Metro?

Aashini is a super extrovert already (which is good sincewe live in a city of 17 million people!) so she LOVED it :) haha!

haha I was gonna ask about the guy being tied up too!
Aashini is making a cute face on the metro.

I think that guy (that's picking his nose) has his head wrap thing tied around him... still don't know why... maybe just playing around... haha!
the monkey one is hilarious! why was the man tied up? oh, wait, i see that about a dozen other people commented on that...
and is riding the metro there as traumatizing as they make it look on 'the amazing race'? everytime an american woman gets on a metro out there on the show, she gets groped by creepy men... aashini doesn't look too worried.

Well, we're on the Metro (which is an underground and above ground subway type thing) and it's nice - crowded but nice :) ... and usually on the Amazing Race they have ridden on trains... and the ones that they've ridden on are completely crazy!(not all trains are like that though - some are awesome! :))

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…
