Road Trip #6... DISNEY!

Road trip #6 started off with a visit to Adam's mom, then a trip to Disney, Visiting friends, and then ended with a visit to Adam's dad. Our friends got us a Disney park-hopper pass for the day and it ROCKED!!! We started off at Animal Kingdom. We hadn't been there in 5 years or so, so it had changed lot. It was a lot of fun! Their South Asia area of the park is so authentic that I thought I was there!
Next we went to the Magic Kingdom :) Aashini started that park off with a nice nap :)
We weren't sure if Aashini was going to enjoy herself or not. We went into a 3D show and she was a little scared (it was loud and it involved water spraying on you and air blowing in your face)... but she loved it!!!
At one point we took her to a place where she could crawl around :)
We just HAD to get her a Mickey hat.... with her name on it ;) We like to get her things with her name on it since there aren't many things that will ever come with her name on it :)
We met some new South Asian friends :) They were waiting on their kids on Thunder Mountain and wanted to hold Aashini.
Aashini and her Ears :)
Family Photo
I think Aashini's favorite ride was "It's a Small World", although she thought the Peter Pan ride was pretty cool. She thought the Pirates of the Caribbean ride was a little scary (especially the little drop) but she still enjoyed it ;) She really had a good time! She would even wave at all the people passing by :) It was cute!
Oh yeah, and she loved the Carousel :)
It was an awesome trip!! It was definitely a much needed day of vacation :)

So fun you guys got to go to Disney. I've never been and look forward to taking our kids some day. I enjoy hearing what people do and like as I "plan" our trip one day!

We're heading over to your city tomorrow. Too bad we couldn't get together with you in South Asia! We'll think of you, I'm sure.

I'm so jealous! Glad you all had a fun day, I love Aashini's little hat. I still have my hat from Disneyland with my name on it. :) We went one stateside when I was in 8th grade. Seeing your pictures, I can't imagine what an overdose of fun and excitement that would be for the!

looks like you guys have fun. I'll be honest and say I am not looking forward to the day when our kids are clamoring for a disney vacation.

I love that you get her stuff with her name on it since her name is rare!

and I also think it's hilarious that you came from south asia to florida, to hang out in the south asian section of a disney park, and make friends with more south asians! home is where your heart is, I guess!

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).
