2012 Day 81

CAROL AND IDA REALLY DID EAT WITH THEIR HANDS.  THIS IS THE NORMAL METHOD FOR BENGALIS WITH BANGLA FOOD.  This was the noon meal at the Taize brothers after the worship service.  The one brother was teasing the ladies that there was an examination.  If they failed to show they could eat decently with their hands he was going to produce spoons for them to use.  They were glad they had one day to practice before this! They must have passed the test since no spoons were produced.  It was quite a bit easier since it was kitcheri!

Eating kitcheri with their hands!

2012 Day 79

WE DID A TOUR ACROSS THE BURIGANGA TO SEE THE SHIP YARDS AND A GARMENT FACTORY.  Here the ladies are posing with sewing machines.  The workers loved to show us their workplace and their products.

2012 Day 78

CAROL AND IDA ON A MYMENSINGH!  They even looked for an excuse to go for a rickshaw ride just before supper.  Riding rickshaws was their favorite mode of transportation, though they really enjoyed the train. They are leaving for the airport at midnight tonight! 😦

We sure have had a good time of catching up with our good friends.

They love riding on a rickshaw with great views and feeling the breezes, etc.
