marlandphotos-blog-food-fish-BengaliNewYearOur 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).

These were some of the carts we met every morning at 5:45 am on the road that goes into Srimongol, Molouvibazar, Syhlet, Bangladesh! It is a lovely walk through the tea estates.
