Walk the Plank!

They're doing construction all over our neighborhood right now on the Nalas in front of our house (the sort-of open sewers). They had to dig up our entire driveway, so now if we have to leave the house, we have to "walk the plank". It makes me laugh!. The hole is kind of deep (you can sort of see below), so hopefully I won't slip :)
It makes me laugh :)

Yikes, that is kinda scary! But look at Adam go, carrying Aashini and everything.
Did they notify you guys before they started digging or was there just a big hole one day? Where we lived, stuff like that would just happen without warning. What do they call it? A crisis-oriented culture or an event-oriented culture? (can't remember exactly) One is like America where we like to be prepared for anything... the other is like a lot of the world where, once whatever happens, we'll see what our options are and go from there.
Driveway is dug up? Well. They provided a plank to walk across...and that's our option, so we'll take it!

Be careful!!!

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).
