Dhaka Rickshaw Fiesta Week 2014 started of with two races. It was a fun event. No I didn’t pull a rickshaw! The relay had 21 rickshaws and 84 rickshaw pullers.

Alu Bhorta (Spicy Mashed Potatoes) for recipe:
My Bengali New Year’s Day Breakfast: Fried chicken, Cucumber salad, and Luchi. I couldn’t find any Ilish mach and panthapat
Other people enjoying the same breakfast I had!
Our neighbor girl saw my facebook post, stating that I hadn’t found any dried Ilish mach for breakfast, so she had her mother fix some and we were invited over in the evening. A real treat. They also served the alu bhorta, dal bhorta, and Panta Bhat (Leftover Rice soaked in Water).
