Science Museum

The other day we decided we should check out some of the museums in our city and decided to start off at the Science Museum. We didn't have very high expectations. We hadn't really heard of anyone going to this museum, and couldn't really find much about it online, so I wasn't sure it would be any good or not. It was actually really awesome! We had a lot of fun!

The first floor we were on had a lot of old things - I loved this big wheel and Aashini was amazed by it!
I currently use my maiden name as my middle name, but before I was married, my middle name was Moire', so I had to to take a picture here :)
Aashini loved this part. She kept rubbing that guy's bald head :) haha!
The main problem with the museum was that it didn't have central Air Conditioning. There were fans all around and there were free-standing AC units here and there, but it was still pretty hot. Other than that, we were impressed. There were tons of interactive things to touch, play with and see how they work. Aashini LOVED it!
Aashini's favorite things were the musical ones. This one (below) was her favorite. You could run around and play the piano by running pas the sensors :)
I love seeing new things in our city and exploring - it's fun! :)

yes! It really has and I'm not sure what to do with it :) haha!
Fun! Yay for new discoveries even after living somewhere for several years!
We have a really cool science museum in our city, too. I had never been there until recently cause I had just assumed it wouldn't be good. I love good surprises. (And Grace is right there with Diya on loving feet! Yummy!)

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…
