Day 334

CAFE MOCHA AT Aarong’s in Dhaka.

Day 333

IQBAL ROAD BEGGAR wanting a handout from men going to the morning Eid prayers.

Day 332

MORNING PRAYER just before the animal sacrifices begin.  The little boy seems to be observing what the others are doing!

Day 331

KORBANI EID IS tomorrow so many goats and cows are purchased.  This guy is not sure if his goat will stay on the van-gari.

Day 330

ORANGE BRIGHTENS this scene of a couple walking the streets of Kushtia town, in Bangladesh.

Oh, by the way! “Happy Birthday!” to Matthias. Hope it is a special day for you.

And for all my American friends, “Happy Thanksgiving!”

DIGITIAL BANGLADESH is on the move.  Here is a sign painter at work in Kushtia town.

Day 328

WHERE DID THEY GET TO?  We got off of the bus together, but with photos to take, etc.  The three ladies in the front got to New Market long before we did!  It seemed like all of Dhaka was near New Market doing pre-Eid shopping!

Day 327

Wow, look at the outfit over there!  Alice and Susanna gazing at another option.

Day 326

SHOPPING LOOKS LIKE FUN!  Jessica, Susanna, and Alice examining all kinds of 3-piece outfits.  My job is to remember where this store is so we can take future visitors there!

Day 325

IT’S ALWAYS SPECIAL to see someone after a long absence.  The one lady had just arrived at the Dhaka airport.

Day 324

JUSTIN, JESSICA, JEREMY, SUSANNA, Katriel, and Moriah arrive in Dhaka.  Excited Jessica is in the front of the line, with Jeremy and Moriah next.  We are looking forward to an exciting day examining the contents of the suitcases.  First, I need to play a game of soccer, while Alice and the guests catch up on their sleep.  I’ll then head out and get some dal, baji, and nan ruti for a tasty breakfast!


Day 323

QUITE YOUNG to be sweeping streets!
