Last Few Days in CM

So tomorrow is our last day in Chiang Mai and weve been having a lot of fun :) It's been great to see old friends and meet new friends - it's been awesome! Aashini is such a people person and has loved meeting so many people :)
We got to see our friend's Jacob & Sara, their daughter and their new little baby girl :)
Aashini made a lot of new friends... Here's a pic (below) of Aashini with two of her teachers :) She loved them :)
Aashini had fun with Brooke and really loved her shoes! She seems to gravitate towards pink things - haha!
About a year and a half ago, when Adam and I were walking through the night market in Chiang Mai and spotted Nigel Lythgoe... (if you want to see the post then click: Nigel Lythgoe Spotting)... Then, on this trip we got to meet Tim Tebow (see post below)... and tonight in the night market, we spotted Henry Rollins and Adam took his picture with him... I didn't recognize him and didn't know who he was at first and I actually told Adam to stay away from him because he seemed creepy (which he was) ... so we took a pic and he moved on - haha! I guess famous people like Chaing Mai :)

haha That's funny!! I don't know who he is either...I had to go to the link you provided, and still nothing is ringing a bell. Adam is a pop culture whiz...Nigel Lithgow, Habeeb, now this. :)
Speaking of Nigel, I've watched SYTYCD...I love it!!

I've never even met ONE famous person and you guys have met tons! so jealous! (well, not about henry rollins, if I'm honest... but the other two are cool.)
Your stroller does look like our old one. I hope it lasts longer! Did you buy it in Thailand?
Actually, I think famous people like you guys...we have lived in Chiang Mai for over two years and have never seen a famous person here! We always hear rumors about various celebrities being in town, and we never seem to be in the right place at the right time to catch them. You two have excellent timing! Glad you guys had a great trip--wish we could have seen you this time!

Okay, I definitely appreciate a Nigel Lythgoe spotting! I'm into SYTYCD right now! I watched last season a couple months ago and am looking forward to another week of this one in the next day or so! Yeah for a picture of Debbie C...we love them! I like that I recognize a lot of people and places in your recent posts!! And by the way,, I think you have just the CUTEST little girl!!

Ha! When I first saw that picture I thought, that guy looks like Henry Rollins! 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…
