OUR HOUSE-HELPER’S MOTHER HAS A ONE-ROOM DWELLING, WHICH SHE SHARES WITH HER SON, DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AND THEIR TWO DAUGHTERS.  Much of  their cooking and serving containers are stored under the bed.  This is in one of the many Bihari camps in Bangladesh.  The fresh lavender paint gives the room a nice look.

I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THESE STRAWBERRIES AT THIS TIME OF YEAR!  They let me taste me one, and I immediately bought a small pack to take back for Alice to taste as well.  We are enjoying our stay at the Hotel Encounter Nepal hotel.  The tub and hot water are a special treat for my wife, Alice!

I HAD ALREADY CHOSEN THIS PHOTO FOR MY BLOG WHEN I REALIZED IT SHOWED A COMMON MISTAKE PHOTOGRAPHERS MAKE.  Always make sure you check out the background. It looks like the bamboo is sticking out of the lady’s head!
