America - Fun Friends

We got to see a lot of fun friends while we were in America! I got pictures with only a few of them (need to do better with that next time!) :) but thought I would post some of them :)
This is my friend Priya :) She's from South Asia so it's always fun to see her when we come into Tally :)
The girls had fun fun playing together... this picture makes me laugh because Diya looks sooooo huge!We had a super-fun intern reunion! (more pictures here on facebook). We always have so much fun :)
We have a bunch of kids between us all now! haha! :) This was our attempt at getting all the kids in the picture :) There are 11 kids in this picture (You probably can't see little Levi... Aashini is holding him - she was so proud to get to hold the baby!!!!)
This is my friend Annie! I was so excited to get to see her and her fun family! This is a picture she took and I loved it, so I'm posting it too :)
Here are our kids (minus two) :)We got to see our friends Mike & Cari.... we have picture with them on their camera that I still want to get, but here are pics of our kids :) Fun!This is my awesome friend Erin! We met, hung out and worked together in South Asia while she was there and she's now in the US. We got to see each other when we were in Virginia - this picture cracks me up :)In Virginia Aashini had sooooo much fun! She got to go to a fun class for a week and make some super fun new friends! This is her fun friend Victory :)This is Victory's mom :) Susan is my fun new friend :)This is a fun friend from college :) I got to see Betsy when we were in Orlando :)In Orlando we also got to see our fun friends Ish & Beatriz :) We met Ish the first time in Thailand! Fun hunh?This is Rahul - Annie's husband :) We got to visit him at his work one day when we were in Tampa :) It was so fun to see him!I got to see one friend I haven't seen in a while! We've known each other and have been friends since Elementary School!! Our moms worked together for a while, and we used to live around the corner from each other. One summer we were on a bicycle trip together and had a big accident together (& shared a hospital room!). Here we were in middle school :)She teaches school in Georgia now and she was in town and we got to see each other! It was fun!! It was fun to see all of those fun friends (plus so many others that we didn't get pictures with!!!) It was awesome!!!

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…
