Funny Things - "I'm not sure what to say about this" Edition

OK, so this is something that is very common... it's something that I see almost every day... You see, people here LOVE Bollywood. They love the movies, they love the actors, they love the actresses, they REALLY love the songs, they love the dancing... well, you get the picture. Anyway, a large number of rickshaw drivers (maybe even a majority of them) have pictures of Bollywood stars stuck on their rear-view mirrors. They are usually cut out into a heart shape...
If you were a guy in America and had a heart cut-out of Brad Pitt or something on your rear-view mirror, your guy friends would totally make fun of you!....
.... But if they lived here, they would totally show you their Tom Cruise :)
hahaha! it totally cracks me up!!

that IS hilarious. do men hold hands there (fingers interlocked) as a gesture of friendship like they do in UAE too?

I like bollywood too, I can't say I blame them. :)

I just saw your twitter post about the neighbors who don't go to bed till late. Our neighbors here at seminary from Asia have that same mentality. Unfortunately we live right next to the playground. It is really loud in the spring and summer.

Do they have papparazi?
Carrie said…
That is way to funny! The first two are these real "buff" men and the last one has this look as if he's looking at the picture!

I have to ask - do people ever ask you why are you taking their picture or do you just do it in secret...

haha! They never ask why. I just take their pics :) haha! Sometimes I try to do it secretly (just so I get a candid pic and don't draw too much attention :)) but I usually just take them - they usually like having their pic made :)

oh yeah, and ErinG - they do the hand holding thing here too... the men hold hands all the time! but the women don't do it as much.

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).
