Comic Con

A couple of weekends ago we went to the 2nd Annual Comic Con in our country :)  (to see pictures from last year's, click HERE).  There were all kinds of funny characters there :)
When we walked in, we saw our friends there.   Their daughter had the same idea as Aashini :)   Here are our cute blonde Spidergirls :)
Diya wanted to go as Tinkerbell, but wanted to wear Aashini's mask a little bit too :)
There were all kinds of booths there this year.  It was MUCH bigger than last year.  Here is the "John Carter" booth... not sure what I think about this movie...
The Avengers booth was really fun!
Aashini was Wolverine :)  (last year she met wolverine!)
There was a guy there drawing people's faces onto super heroes (for free!) :)
The girls got free coloring comic books and markers and decided to color them on the stage (they were in between sessions)... and the "paparazzi" was surrounding them the entire time they were coloring.
Spidergirl and a local comic book character.
This lady was awesome!  She had this sari hand-printed just for ComicCon!   A Batman Sari!!!  How cool is that????
Look at the back of her Sari Blouse!!!  LOVE it!  haha!
Aashini got to punch out a wall at the Avenger's booth :)  She thought it was awesome :)
Do I look like the Hulk?
Like ComicCon in America, people came to ComicCon here all dressed up (but much more conservative!! and much more clothed :))
Another X-men Character :)
This guy was scary looking!
Aashini with one of the local Cartoon Characters.... Chota Beem.

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…
