Welcome to the Hanham Family website.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to our family and friends around the world!
We are currently closer to the equator where the year-round temperature range is 70°-88° F, and the humidity is normally 85% to 90%. That’s very different weather from Thanksgiving Day in eastern USA. Here is a picture of our Thanksgiving meal.
During November, we have been traveling, enjoying many areas of South Asia. Suzanna is waiting for the train.
Suzanna participated in a ladies meeting and was given this scarf as the traditional welcome.
At morning tea time, a snake was discovered in the window sill of the conference room, which was on the 3rd floor of the building! Everyone who knows Suzanna knows how much she fears snakes! She survived!
The train was so late that it was dark by the time we walked across the border. As frequently happens, electricity went off; so this agent at the checkpoint had to use a kerosene lantern to process our passports!
Richard uses street cobblers to repair his watch band at the train station and to repair his sandals on an Indian street.
The Asian Ronald McDonald gives the typical Asian greeting. His menu also reflects Asian foods and spices. His French fries and ice cream tastes the same though!
These Tuk Tuk vehicles took us many places quickly and economically.
This hot spring is used by local people to boil eggs and sell them to tourists.
We visited a White Temple and were especially moved by the architect’s depiction of judgment and hell.
During a festival night skies were filled with hot air balloons like this as people sent their sins away for the year. Sleeping was difficult with fireworks going off throughout several nights. In giving thanks to the god of water, rafts made of flowers and candles were floated on the river along with large, colorful floats.
These tribal people wear metal bands to stretch their necks as a way to ward off evil spirits.
Notice how this tribal woman’s ears have been elongated by her earrings!
Here’s a sign we’ve never seen in our US homeland!
What fun to ride an elephant again!
Trust in the Lord with your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
