My Sister is Here!

My sister is here! She got in the day before yesterday. Yesterday we hung out...
She tried to learn how to make Poori (sp?) bread.... she wasn't very successful at it :) haha!
We took Aashini to school and then went and picked her up after school. It was the first time I had been to her school since having Diya, so we brought sweets for everyone :)
After Aashini's nap, we went to a fort that I love! You can read about the fort here!
This shepherd guy had his donkeys walking around inside of the fort. He had their ankles tied together, it was kinda funny :)
This fort is so cool looking! It's "wintertime" so it's super hazy and foggy looking some days!
There were a lot more monkeys there than the last time we were there! There were tons of them! (You can see a couple of them in the shadows in this picture).
So those are the pics from yesterday... but no pics from today - my sister is sick :(

I love that first picture of Alison with Diya! They look like they're bonding. :) I hope she feels better soon...I can take an educated guess at what's wrong with her... :( That's no fun!

That's amazing that you're out and about that much after a c-section! Glad you are feeling good!

haha! yeah, I'm definitely out at about but exhausted by 8:00 pm! haha! Walking on all the stairs at the fort totally made me sore too - I think if you have a c-section you're not supposed to do stairs for the first month if you can help it... oops!

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).
