Things That Make You Go hmmm....

Have you ever wondered how they clean the tent-like roofs at some places? The mall that is in our part of town has one of those roofs over half of it... you know, the ones that are kinda like a circus tent, but more permanent? Anyway, I always wondered how they clean those. I never really wondered how they did that in America... I mean, it rains there pretty often where I lived, so it never seemed dirty... BUT where we currently live it is SUPER dusty and only rains 2 times a year.... so cleaning is necessary.
Anyway, the other day we went there for lunch after my Doc appointment, and we saw they were cleaning it. It actually looked really fun (and maybe a little scary)... They aren't hooked onto that rope or anything, just holding onto it while they clean! One guy slid down from the top like it was a big water slide! It was pretty crazy!

Random, I know, but I thought it looked kinda fun :)

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!

Funny Things - Funny Sign :)

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).
