Funny Things!

It's been a while since I've done a "Funny Things" post, so I thought it was about time :)
This picture (below) makes me laugh for a few reasons. It's funny just because there are a bunch of cops crammed into this rickshaw... but it's funniest to me because there is a cop sitting in the front seat with the driver - which is against the law! haha! I have a picture of the cops breaking the law ;)
Another rickshaw picture :) This guy was headed to the bus or train station with is luggage. He looks a little funny all crammed into this rickshaw with his luggage... but look closely at the bottom of his pant leg ...
I've never seen a zipper at the bottom of a pair of pants before - not sure why it's there or what it's purpose is - but it makes me laugh :) Would you zip your pants closed or the end of your pants together? hmm...
Misspellings always make me laugh :) This is on a middle of a busy road... I think it's also funny that it used to say "parking" at the top... hmm... haha!
This one may not be that funny, but it makes us laugh :) Usually with alphabet books, Xx is usually "xylophone" or "x-ray"... this one has Xylophone but also has X-mas tree! haha! That makes me laugh :)
So one Saturday morning we went to the Netherlands Embassy for a garage sale (sounds weird hunh?). They were selling and auctioning things off - it was pretty crazy! There was something that stood out to me in the picture below that made me laugh...
Here's a closer look... yes, tire chains... you know for snow?? Hmm... for a semi-arid HOT city, that's a funny thing to try to sell :) Sure, we have a couple months that are colder... but not cold enough to snow muchless to need chains on your tires :) haha! (it's like trying to sell tire chains in Mexico or Northern Africa or something :) haha!)
Just thought I'd share a few things that make me laugh :)

oooh, blog makeover! I like it.

Also, thanks to this post, Nathan officially knows the word "rickshaw."

Doesn't it mean something special when they're green? Everything I know about your city I learned from you and the amazing race. :)

Well, the Green & yellow rickshaws are government rickshaws. I don't think you can have one that isn't though :) In the south and some places in the East they're usually yellow & black :)

Thanks for the smile! I'd like to print off the first picture and put it in my purse in case a cop ever pulls us over for having a passenger in the front of the rickshaw :).

I found that "Don't be taken for a ride," article about rickshaws in my wallet the other day. :) I love it that there is an endless supply of funny things there. :)
I actually laughed out loud at some of these! Maybe zippers are a fashion trend we are missing...

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).
