American with a Twist!

So I haven't been out as much lately... I'm huge and pretty uncomfortable, so walking around hasn't been a big priority... so I don't have much to share on this blog right now :) I thought I'd post about a few things we have here lately that are American with a twist ;)

We have McDonald's here and it's good - definitely different than the US (I posted about it before in case you're interested)... Anyway, now a few of them have started serving Breakfast! I'm excited. I haven't made it to have breakfast yet but I can't wait to try it :) One of the things they sell is the Veg McMuffin :) Sounds good! In our country eggs aren't usually considered veg (or vegetarian - does that answer your cupcake question Erin?) so this one is some sort of veg patty that has spinach - I can't wait to try it :)
We also have Pizza Hut here. There are some funny toppings (although definitely not as funny as Thailand has!)... For some reason they love to put baby corn on their pizzas... weird :) We ordered this pizza the other day - it had MAYO on it! haha!
well, that's all I've got right now :)

I SO wish we had Pizza Hut here in Prague!!! However, the pizza places that are here come up with some pretty crazy combos... I've seen everything from baby corn to whole kernel corn to green beans to tuna fish! And ketchup... lots and lots of ketchup. :)

yep that answers it. I don't know why I didn't put two and two together with the egg thing. Can I blame it on sleep deprivation or is my kid sleeping too well for that?

mayo on pizza. EW. I don't know how your pregnant belly got through that!

So many comments for one short post!
1. How exciting about the breakfast thing. I'm surprised it opens at 7 though. I would've thought they'd go the Cafe Coffee Day route and open for breakfast at 10. :)
2. I'm looking forward to your review of the spinach patty. You know I'm an avid Veg Surprise fan, but the spinach patty? Might take some convincing.
3. I LOVE baby corn on pizza. I love SA pizza...isn't that weird? I miss it.
4. Ew on the mayo. But I guess it goes along with the ketchup and mustard they always give on the side. :)
Be glad that the mayo was a topping. I picked up a slice of pizza at Walmart once that had Mayo INSTEAD of cheese. Life overseas :)

haha! That mayo story reminds me of the pizza I had in the mountains that had shredded cabbage in the sauce! I definitely did NOT order was a bonus. :)

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…
