The drizzly day turned into a downpour just in time for us to go out! Rickshaw Wallah was prepared with a piece of plastic keeping us quite dry till we arrived at our destination.

At least here in Bangladesh! Takes me back to the days when we baled hay and put it into the barn, sometimes 1,000 bales in one day. At the end of the day, one of the rewards was cold, sweet watermelon!

National Parliament House, located at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar, is an Architectural wonder in the world and masterpiece of the world-famous architect Louis Isidor Kahn. Because of its architectural values and significance, it is an important place for the visitor from home and abroad. -Wikipedia

This is the intersection of Mirpur Road and Manik Mia Avenue, below where the Bangladesh Parliament Building photo was taken.

Here from this vantage point outside the “Seventh Heaven” cafe my friends were videoing the traffic below. We enjoyed a dish of ice cream here as well.
