I have known this young man for many years.  The big bag is full of muri, similar but smaller than puffed rice.  It is used to make a very tasty, spicy snack called jhal muri!

Alice attended BIF5 the exhibition of the TTL photo club of which I am a member.  I had a photo in the exhibition, which was a pleasure.  Here is Alice with some of the ladies from the club.

I’ll probably have to pay for this one, but I had to post it.  I’m not sure if the husband approves!  Thanks for coming to see the exhibition!

Crazy

This young girl spends her morning carrying a big rice bag around to fill with paper and plastic for recycling.   Though part of the many poor in Dhaka, she still knows how to smile.

I was being kind and taking down the curtains to wash from our son’s office, since he was going to be gone for some time.  I thought the rolling desk chair wouldn’t be very safe, so I chose this plastic chair!  Big Mistake!  Only a cut underneath my foot at the big toe joint.  I confess that when the house-helper and my wife realized I was ok, they couldn’t keep from laughing as they replayed the scene in their mind!  There was a not so subtle hint made about me losing some weight!  I was thinking more down the line of blaming it on an old sun-dried plastic chair that was already on the way out!  It was a shock to go plunging and finding my foot on the floor!

This Chair Has Seen It's Days! Sorry, Dustin

Well, he should be in the air by now on the way to NYC to teach some linquistics.  He is 38 years old, so it isn’t the first time he has left home!  In fact one of the times he left home, we followed him and now live with him in Bangladesh!  This isn’t a photo of him this morning, but one of him walking up the street on another day.

See you in Ohio!

I love this ad on the wall of a building near Coffee World in Lalmatia!  It is likely because this is the kind of camera I used from 1964-66 when I was doing photography for my high school newspaper and yearbook!

Great style of camera! The good ole' days!
