Good Bengali hospitality, generally means serving a cup of tea!

Boats waiting on the shore of the Brahmaputra River, either to ferry people across to the village, or to give rides up and down the river!

This was one of my photos that was exhibited at Kalpana Boarding for the TTL-BIF7 Photo Exhibition.  The exhibition had two venues this year, including Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi.

I actually took this photo while riding a Rickshaw on Asad Avenue in Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh.  I have had tea with the gentleman on the left, and he has even given me free rickshaw rides.

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!

Morning Stretches!

We used this boat to cross the river for the photo in the previous blog.  Bangladesh used to have many sailboats with beautiful colorful sails until the importation of the gas engine!

ACROSS THE RIVER FROM MYMENSINGH WE FOUND THIS SPOT WITH A NICE BACKDROP FOR SOME PORTRAITS!

Here I am lit up with the last of the day’s sunlight!

Thanks for being willing to pose for this shot!

A ready smile from Neepa!
