Welcome to the Hanham Family website.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Richard! Here in South Asia, the birthday person supplies sweets to friends. Not a crumb was left from these chocolate brownies that Suzanna baked and Richard shared!
Here’s a sight I’ve never seen before – someone on a rickshaw reading a map, telling the rickshaw walla which direction to go! We were not lost; we simply needed to determine how close we were to our destination.
We were stuck in such a long traffic jam, the rickshaw walla was happy to take our picture while we waited for traffic to move.
Here are school “buses” also stuck in traffic.
This is a typical taxi in our capital city. This is one of the interior doors – no window handle, rusted, upholstery long gone . . .
After we reached our destination, the driver raised the hood to do some adjustments.
Our part of South Asia is having a record-breaking cold spell! Temperatures have dropped to 40°F several mornings recently! This results in much suffering by people here who do not have adequate clothing and shelter. These dinner guests were dressed warmly, and they kept on their scarves and jackets during their entire visit – even while eating!
Even Richard, Shonkar, and Ali are wearing scarves and jackets indoors!
When we visited tribal friends to buy blankets recently, we were given fresh ginger grown by this family in their village.
There is no need for refrigeration here. Chickens and ducks are sold live on the street. Here is a typical vendor selling live ducks.
Do you wonder why we eat chicken instead of beef?
