For some it is the of their team losing in the World Cup, but for some it is an injury during play. This was from a tournament at Zakir Hossain Road, Lalmatia, Mohammadpur, Dhaka.  My team is playing in the semi-finals of this tournament, on the 23rd or 24th.



We’ve been busy with our 45th wedding anniversary, U.S. Flag Day, beginning of the Soccer World Cup, giving visitors a tour of Dhaka, and Mymensingh, and Father’s Day!  I decided I need to get on my blog and for sure wish my wife, “A very Happy Birthday!  Now she is “older” than I am.  For two months I will be glad to do whatever she wants me to!!! 🙂

Here she is the “Pied Piper” in the Bailor Village near Mymensingh!


I decided to re-post this photo from 2010, to show what the Kanchenjunga mountain (World’s 3rd highest) looks like on a clear day, since during our recent visit the mountain could barely be seen through the clouds. This photo is from January 2010.
