We Have Shifted!

We moved houses!! We moved last week! Our house had some serious termite issues and through some crazy events we ended up having to move earlier than planned.
Here's our house being packed up :)
This is what I and the girls did while Adam and the boys were moving and packing up the house :) Our awesome friends took us in for the day (and ended up being the night too!) while we moved! There was a glitch with the moving (and city rules) so they had to sit with the packed up truck until 9:00 pm... they weren't done unloading the truck until 3:45 am!!
Here's a picture of a room with all our stuff moved in!!
I love the house shaped windows - haha!
This is our landlord at her house :) She's awesome ;)
This is a road right behind our house that leads to this awesome ridge/park!! It's called the Rock Garden. It's full of big rocks - it's awesome!
Aashini LOVES it!
Here's one of the views from the top!
Aashini & Diya LOVE climbing on the rocks!
In our local market there is an awesome playground! It's even lit up at night and moms are there with their kids :) It's fun :)
We LOVE our new neighborhood and neighbors! It's awesome! Moving in is very slow (having to watch kids and move - it's a mess! haha!) It's going good though :) We'll post pics of our house once we get it all set up :)


Haha! Folks say "shift" here too. And when they ask where you live, they ask where you "sit." :) So excited you like your new neighborhood and were able to find a house when you needed to get out of the other one quickly. Can't wait to see pics! (we move in 2+ months...making me excited!)

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!

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…

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). Everyon…
