Bye Alison :(

My sister Alison left yesterday to go back to her home in Californa. We drove to another city to the airport (it was chaper)... Aashini hasn't really fallen in love with the whole "carseat thing" yet :) haha! It was soooo cute! When it was time for Alison to go to her gate we told Aashini that Alison was leaving and to say bye -- Aashini just started crying and waving to Alison - it was so sad and cute!! She really seemed like she knew what was going on! She would look at Alison and wave and cry! She was really sad that Alison was leaving.
Today were some local elections. We went in to vote and Aashini got to vote... well... sort-of :)

It is great that your sister could spend so much time with you. So, where are you? Are you coming to Colorado? I have a really nice place for you to stay.

Ah, that picture of Alison and Aashini makes me want to cry! What a sweet memory that you captured. It's funny the things they can pick up on and understand. It never ceases to amaze me!

That is so funny that she understood! She's a little genius. :)
That is so sad! It's awesome that you had time with your sister. Sisters are the BEST!!! Aashini should have one. ;)

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…
