Road Trip #3?... I think...

This weekend we (Adam, Aashini and my parents) went up to Knoxville, TN for the weekend. Most of my family (other than my parents) live in Knoxville, so we had to go and show off Aashini :) Today though, we spent most of the day in the Gatlinburg area. We hiked to Clingman's dome. This hike is great because it's paved the whole way so we could take the stroller... but it's STRAIGHT UPHILL :) My legs are tired :) It was really cold up there on the mountain! We didn't bring warm enough clothes for Aashini, so we wrapped her up in some blankets :)
She thought it was so cool :) Later it started sprinkling, so we added a poncho to her attire :)
When we made it to the top of Clingman's Dome, it was sleeting!!!!! It was cold!!
It was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed the cool weather in September!
Here's a pic of Adam & Aashini being goofy :)

We went up there OCtober 2 years ago and it was snowing, I'll send you the pix, It was the most beautiful coldest place I had ever seen,like a winter wonder land, it was so hard to get to the top, I don't know how you pushed a stroller. I'm so glad you are seeing everyone and going places. I 've been thinking about you all. I love you miss you already.

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).
