Clothes Drying & Other Random Things...

Sorry for the lack of posting... This Meniere's Disease has been killer... ugh!
Anyway... just though I'd post something :)  I wasn't sure what to post (I've been in bed with vertigo a lot)... so I thought I'd post something that I see daily...

This time of year there is quite a bit of humidity in the Capital.  Since we don't have central heating or AC, the humidity is in the house also ... which means that air-drying clothes can be challenging!  
The other day Adam got creative and made a "clothes dryer" for us :)   
He put all the wet clothes on our clothes drying rack and then covered it with 2 double sheets and pinning it with clothes pins.  
 Then we put our blower heater under it... and even have a vent on top (this wasn't a good pin job this day... we've gotten better) :)   And there you have it!  A (really ugly) Clothes Dryer! :)  It works awesome!
 And just for fun....
Here's one of the markets next to our house... Adam loves this section of the market - it's a Mobile/Cell Phone Market :)

Love it. It's amazing how creative you can give when you have too. I once dried my hair of the gas burning heater.

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…
