Comic Con!!

We found out that Comic Con was coming to our country and we thought that was awesome! They were doing it for the first time ever AND it was going to be in our city - so why not?! I always thought it would be awesome to go in America and this was probably the closest I would ever get :) haha! Here are a couple of comics they drew of a South Asian Superhero - awesome!
Of course, as soon as we got off the metro, the papad man was there selling his fun crunchy snacks, so we had to gobble some up! :) It's one of our favorite snacks :)
Comic Con was in it's first year here, so it wasn't very big, but it was cool! There were people even dressed up! I wasn't sure what to expect, but some people went all out! There were quite a few jokers, batman, scarecrow, some characters I didn't recognize....
... even Captain American made a showing!
Wolverine really did look like wolverine! Not sure who these guys are in the black... when we were first coming in I saw them and said to Adam: "Hey! Look some people wore costumes!"... then Adam said: "Andrea, those aren't costumes, they're burkas!".... then I felt really bad until we got closer and we saw that they really were costumes :) haha!
He really does look a lot like Wolverine.... Diya wasn't that impressed :)
... but she was intrigued :)
These guys made me laugh... A female Scarecrow & Jafar sharing some ice cream :) haha!
It was fun :) I can't wait to see how awesome it is next year :) Very fun :)

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…
