Friends :)

OK, I'm back :) We've been having a lot of computer issues and my computer had to be wiped a couple of times, but hopefully I'm good now :)
A couple of weeks ago school was canceled all over the city because it was too cold (we don't have heaters in the classrooms here :)) We thought it would be a fun day to visit our friend Deepak & his family because their kids were out of school & so were ours :)
Here's Aashini with Daniel & Ashish.
ALL the kids in the neighborhood were out of school too :) There was a bunch of kids to play with :)
Aashini had a lot of fun :)
This is the street Deepak lives on. It was full of activity!!!!
Cute kids :) You can see Daniel on the left :)
Aashini was trying to practice her Hindi :)
Diya with Ashish :)
Deepak & Sunita ;)
Aashini playing tea party :)
She has a great smile :)
This little girl cracks me up!
Ashish & Daniel :) Too cute :)

"too cold" was about 40 :) The buildings and houses here don't have insulation (only bricks and concrete) so it's super cold inside!

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…
