Day 99


This nice lady, Rehanna, invited us to her home on February 6 to enjoy a great meal of curried chicken and rice, etc.  This week the contents of her home were destroyed by fire.  Her one-room house had a cement floor and brick walls so it will take less to rebuild than many of the homes.

Rehanna, our gracious hostess.

Day 98

JANATA  HOUSING in which 100 homes were destroyed on Monday by fire.  This is Alice and Dustin.  We were here at the invitation of the lady who does cleaning and cooking at Dustin’s office.  She invited us for a meal, and to meet her family.  Her sister’s house was also destroyed. Her house was one that was destroyed!

Before Fire destroyed 100 homes.

Day 97

ROZI – Alice’s Bangla language tutor.  We are actually leaving with her for 5 day over the Easter Holiday to spend time in her village with her and her husband.  She want’s Alice to teach her some American cooking in the morning while I go out and about with her husband.  In the afternoon is rest time and then every evening we will visit in different homes.  I am looking forward the the many Bengali curries that will likely await us.  Several weeks ago they were without power and water for 30 hours.  We’re fortunate it only goes off here for an hour every other hour during the hot days!

Roji (Donna) a very good tutor!

Day 96

RAINBOW over Dhaka

We had a nice refreshing rain today cooling off the city for awhile.


Day 95


After the haircuts we got on a rickshaw and headed home.  After taking the photo, I actually sat up behind Jensen on the back of the seat.

Is there still room for Grandpa?
