Should You Always Get Back on the Horse??

There is a market near our house that sells these things called Kathi Rolls... Adam's favorite is the Egg Chicken Roll. It's pretty much a tortilla with Egg, Chicken, some green stuff (cabbage & stuff), ketchup & spices... Adam loves them! He loves them so much, that when we had some Fun Vols in town, he decided to take them to eat some Kathi Rolls (street food, a risky move)... Well, we all ate one or two (except for one girl - Erica) and EVERYONE (but Erica) got sick!!! Some got sicker than others... Adam was sick for about 2 months - it was pretty bad.
Well, now that we are back in South Asia, Adam has really wanted another Kathi Roll :) He said: "It's like riding a horse, if you fall off, you just have to get back on and keep riding"... So he decided that to get over his fear of Kathi Rolls from before, he needed to just eat another one :) So he did...
Well, needless to say, he's sick again :) So, the question is.... "Should You Always Get Back on the Horse??"

Maybe you could only half way ride the horse....leave the chicken out. :) I see so many good looking foods on the streets here, but am too chicken of getting sick. :) Joyce

I agree - not worth it! Maybe you could learn to make them with potassium permanganate-d cabbage. :) James used to eat golgo paa (not sure how to spell it) ALL THE TIME. Even the Indians would lecture him on not eating that from the cart. :) HOpe he's not sick for 2 months this time!! My doctors always said the viral stuff is worse in the winter (hence my need for hospitalization in Dec 07 :) I say it's year round. :)

oh no.
i think its the uncooked veggies and also the chicken that gets contaminated. the roti with egg should be safer.
in anycase...hope he's getting better.

OH, now I'm so worried, its not like you have alot of weight to lose. No, don't get back on that horse again. Is it that loose motion stuff?

you know, even after reading about ow adam is sick.. AGAIN.. these things still look good to me. apparently I am a masochist of some sort. :)

wonder if I can get an UNcontamiated one at our indian restaurant? I have never seen it on the menu. wonder if it's just a street thing?

hope he feels better!

Yikes - I hope he feels better faster than before. Now if he tries them again something's wrong...

Are these rolls not making other people sick too? How is this guy still in business?

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…
