Parents Visit!

My parents are here for a visit :) We've been having a lot of fun :) I haven't had much time to blog about their trip (more posts to come) but here are a few pictures...
Taking Aashini to school...
Having some fun in Old Delhi! My Aunt Melinda is an awesome seamstress (who totally needs to apply for Project Runway!) and wanted a few things that are perfect to find in the Old Part of the City, so we went out to get them :)
This is what the roads look like in this area - SUPER tight!!!
Here's mom standing in the middle of one those crazy roads!
Dad even got to "drive" a rickshaw :)
We've been to a couple of weddings of some friends while they've been here (I'll post more about those later)... here's a pic of Aashini having fun with some of the flowers from the wedding :)
And one more for fun :)

Looks like they're getting out and about quite a bit already! I'm so happy for you - it's so fun when the parents come. And you're a goofball - I love that last picture!! :)

Awww, your awesome parents look exactly the same as they did 15 years ago (side note: WOW! 15 years!!!).

street pictures are always fascinating to me! and dude, you got some serious hang time!!
Yay for parents visiting! I can't remember... is this the first they've seen of Diya in person?
The last one is my favorite...jumping with abandonment:)

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).
