Where Have We Been??

Hey!! Sorry we've been a little absent lately :) Things have been a little crazy! We leave to go to the states on the 17th... so we've been going crazy doing tons of stuff :) Along with that... or great friends S&S had a baby!!!!!!! We watched their other 2 girls the last couple of days while they were in the hospital having their new baby - Joy!She's quite the cutie and her sisters are so excited to have their new little sister :)
On another note... while trying to "walk the baby out", Susan & I did a little shopping to get ready for our trip to the states :) We went in this shop and this guy decided to show us what this belly dancing scarf looked like on a person - haha!

what does it mean to "walk the baby out?"

how fun you get to come to the states... are you staying long?

Yea for S&S!!! Did they know this one was a girl???

"walk the baby out"... she was having contractions and walking brings them on stronger and gets the labor coming faster :)

They didn't know it was a girl - it was a surprise :)

Hey! Hope your last few weeks go great, but I'm sure you are busy!!! Can't wait to get the update on your time in the states!Will you be at the farm in Sept?
It was really nice of that guy to show you his moves! Thank goodness there was no "belly" for the belly-dance.

Cute little baby!

I would like to request your presence in California. Are you taking requests?

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…
