TTL’s “BANGLADESH IN FRAMES 3” PHOTO EXHIBITION is finished.  It ran from March 25-29. The photo below was taken outside the gallery.  I am also in the group photo on the right hand side.  Look for a pale face and white hair.  It may be hard to do with the spot light that was aimed at the poster plus camera flash.  Day 76 has a better rendition of the group photo.

Today I went for a followup visit to the hospital, and the OP orthopedic Dr. looked at my previous x-ray and said my ankle is not broken!  After 4-6 days I will go in to have the cast taken off and re-examined!

INGRID MILLER AND I STANDING with the photo of mine that accepted to be a part of the TTL “Bangladesh in Frames III” exhibit at Drik Gallery, in Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Bangladesh from March 25-29.  Ingrid is a friend and physio therapist who met me at the gallery to show me how to properly get up on a rickshaw and down. She was expecting me to arrive on a CNG, so was surprised to see me on a rickshaw before she taught me how. I did confess that I had already gotten up on a rickshaw, went to the vegetable market to buy veggies, and came home and got off the rickshaw.  We tried several methods but she admitted that the way I was doing was probably the best way.  I suspect in physiotherapy schools they don’t teach techniques on how to get up on a rickshaw unless the school would be CRP in Savar, Bangladesh!!  Actually it was my wife’s good idea on how to get into a microbus (van), which she gave me yesterday on our trip to the India border.  Ingrid also helped assist and give me ideas as I negotiated the steps to the different galleries at Drik.  Notice the shirt which I received as a gift because one of my photos was accepted!
