THAILAND!!

We made it to Thailand!! Aashini did great on the flights! We got the bulkhead for them, so Aashini slept on the floor in front of us (her preferred place) :)
I've gotten a couple foot massages since being here - it's been great!!! Much needed!! (this picture makes me laugh :) The ladies beside us had some sort of silly putty stuff on their faces!!)
Aashini is loving the public transportation and having blast!!
She's loving her class too - she's exausted every day after a day of playing ;) I'll post more pictures soon :)

man, when I was in china and pregnant, NO ONE would massage me for fear of inducing labor. It's one of those things I was REALLY looking forward to about Asia, and I didn't get it. :( How did you convince them??

You reminded me I have a massage gift card right now, and I should schedule a pregnancy massage this week :)

Aww...a foot massage sounds great!! I love it that Aashini likes to sleep on the floor of the plane. What a laidback kid. :)

You just tell the people that you are pregnant and they dont' mess with the pressure points that could induce labor - they know what they're doing. I also know the points in case they forget or don't know what they're doing :)

yeah I'm pretty sure the massage people here are NOT that competent. :)

Aw man it looks like a blast! The group that is there is from my MOPS church- its such a small world. I can't believe A slept on the floor- but hey however she'll sleep right? Next time you go you'll have TWO babies!!!

I really don't want to say this because it's so hackneyed, but Double-A looks so adorably cute.

The eyes are so good to look at... I dunno why all orientals, aryans & dravidians usually have dark eyes...

Got any close close-ups?

Yeah, the Chinese are not into massages for pregnant women. Thai women don't seem to mind, but I also read that in the 3rd trimester you should avoid foot massages not because of inducing labor because it can cause problems with varicose veins in your legs. Since my mom and sister have trouble with them, I wasn't taking any chances!! I waited until post-delivery!

I'm so jealous you're in Thailand!!

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 other day Adam saw this clinic.   At first glance it seems pretty normal..... But if you read the sign you'll see that it's a  "MUTATION DIET CLINIC"!!!! hahaha!  Mutation Diet??  What?? Really?  hahaha!  :)  Awesome :)

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).
