Dhaka City Travel


Speeding through the city at 6 am, going through red lights, like they were tissue paper. On a rare occasion the the CNG driver eased into the intersection treating it as a flashing yellow light!  I probably reached my destination in 20 minutes! At 10:00 it was a different story. Leaving Old Dhaka on a bus, we inched along, taking close to an hour to get within rickshaw distance of our apartment. The CNG ride cost me 350 taka ($4.40 U.S.D.) since I didn’t have the correct amount, and he didn’t have the right change! The bus ride cost me 25 taka (.30 USD), and then a 5 minute rickshaw ride for 20 taka (.25 USD). All in all it was a great morning with a nice photowalk with TTLers at the Saderghat Launch Terminal, followed by a nice breakfast of dal, porota, and cha!!
