Emily wanted to get Mehendi (henna) done one last time before she left, so we took a trip to the market the morning they left to get it done :) Here's Emily getting her hands done.Here's my hand (below)... I only got one hand done so that it would be easier to get our bags and ourselves back home :)
The finished products! :)

I really wanted to get that done when we came to visit, but we ran out of time! Such a unique form of art.

It takes about 30 min to an hour to dry - depending on the weather... but then you're not supposed to get your hand wet for a while afterwards (some people say to wait 24 hours)... It does tickle sometimes - haha! It's fun though :)

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).
