After traveling around with no home for over four months we arrived at Latha's uncle house in Klang, Maylasia.  Here her Grandma and Grandpa live with her aunt and uncle in a city about 1 hour west of Kuala Lumpar.  We met up with her other sister Siva who will be joining us for the next month, and had a chance to enjoy some good fasion home cooking (Indian style) Yum!

Since her grandparent understand a little English but do not speak Eenglish I have had to learn a few words of Tamil. We visited the town of Klang one day, walking around with Latha's Grandpa, and visiting the local Sari shops and Indian stores.  But mostly we just hung out at their house enjoying the family and visiting.

New words Calvin Has learned
1)  Appatha  (Grandma)
2) Eyaya (Grandepa)
3) Perriappa Appa (Uncle)
4) Perriamma (Aunt)
5) Whodapa (Spicy)

Whodapa is by far the most useful.

Latha and Siva learnt to tie garlands with flowers (it took some extra patience for Latha).  We also attended a baby's ear peircing ceremony.  The baby was one month old and very adorable (especially with her new gold earrings).
