Alice get’s one.
With an apartment on the top floor of a nine-story apartment building gives us a great view of the world around us.
A great way to cool off.
When the sun comes out so do the wet clothes.
What a great evening sky!
These ladies daily are on the street begging.
These girls were more than glad to pose for a photo
Out getting some publicity
My sandals getting a good shine
Rainy afternoon traffic
These baskets are getting a ride
Two ladies who frequent tea stand, baskets pushed down the street, my sandals being polished. Pogo man on stilts, guardians waiting for the school children, street urchins, and a crowded rainy Mirpur Avenue.
This was a Christian wedding. She was a friend of Dustin’s.
Alice and I with the Bride and Groom. Dustin had him in one of his English classes several years ago. There were several thousand guests at the wedding. We arrived at 6:00 PM and had some coffee, had some pictures taken with the couple, and then went to the dining hall to eat a Bengali meal. The groom was around to make sure we were well taken care of. The groom was going back and forth from the lobby of the building, having photos taken and up where the people were eating. Obviously when tables were empty people left and others took their place. We had curried mutton, chicken, rice and vegetables.
Notice that for the photos they don’t like to smile!
Plenty of Jewelry! This is basically the dowry. The father of the Groom is a Doctor.
