It's Getting HOT...

It's starting to get hot... the heat started up a little later this year, which is nice, but it's coming on strong now!! Every day it's gotten up about one degree hotter than the next - so it won't be long before we get those wonderful 125 degree days :) Luckily our flat is a lot cooler than the one we had in M-town. In M-town, it was so hot in our flat that our toothpaste melted!! I used to put my pajamas in a ziplock in the freezer during the day so that I would have something cool to put on at night when I went to bed :)
.
OK, so on our friend's blog the other day they made a list, so I thought I'd copy them and do the same:
.
YOU KNOW IT'S HOT WHEN...
- It's 11 pm and your thermometer still reads 95 F (even though the sun went down 4 hours ago).
- It’s hotter to be driving in the rickshaw, than to be sitting still in traffic (because the air is so hot it feels like a blow-dryer blowing in your face)
- You decide to take a shower to cool off and find that the cold water is actually HOT.
- You decide to give your baby a bath and fill the bath with only “cold water” but the water is too hot and you have to add ICE to the baby’s bath.
- You step out of the shower and immediately break into a sweat.
- You have to stick your head in the freezer several times while making dinner so you don't pass out.
- You re-think cooking dinner over a hot stove (in a kitchen without a fan because the fan would blow out the fire on the stove) and consider ordering out.
- The candles in your house are no longer straight and have melted into a funny blob.
- The chocolate that isn’t in the refrigerator is completely melted.
- You notice that water doesn't take as long to boil because it's already halfway there out of the tap
.
I know there are more - but that's what I have right now :) I'm sure I'll be adding more later :) Here's a pic to leave you with... This guy was hot while he was out pushing his cart, so he found a place in the shade to cool off for a nap...

haha That man sleeping in the 'shade' is hilarious.

This is good salad-for-dinner season. Well...if you could actually find lettuce, that is. :)

I love hot weather, but that is REALLY hot! It reminds me of Taiwan where you just want to take a cold shower, but when you get out you are sweating.

You seem to find a lot of people taking naps around town. Doesn't anyone go home for a nap anymore? lol

oh.my.word. and you were pregnant in that heat?!!?!?! poor thing. i knew you guys had to deal with intense heat, but i did not realize it got THAT hot. ok. you just shut me up about our hot, hazy, muggy summers down here. when i feel like complaining, i will think of you. (and probably still whine a little. :D )

Such a fun post! Your descriptions made me laugh... and be thankful for spring days where the morning temps are still in the 50s here! As I read your post, I couldn't help but think of when I was in the country you visited for vacation recently and I could wash my clothes in the sink, hang them to dry outside, take a shower and by then my clothes would be dry enough to put back on! :)

Wow. We had a 115 degree day in Chiang Mai last week supposedly. It was probably good I didn't know it was THAT hot. Now we're in HK and its a lot cooler. But in a few days we'll go home where it could still snow on any given day! Crazy.

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…
