SULTANA WANTED ME TO SEE HER GRANDCHILD.  I THEN WANTED A PHOTO OF THE TWO OF THEM.

I STOP AT THIS TEA STAND SOME MORNINGS FOR TEA OR MAYBE BREAKFAST IF I AM CLOSE TO THE BIHARI CAMP.

OUR HOUSE-HELPER’S MOTHER HAS A ONE-ROOM DWELLING, WHICH SHE SHARES WITH HER SON, DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AND THEIR TWO DAUGHTERS.  Much of  their cooking and serving containers are stored under the bed.  This is in one of the many Bihari camps in Bangladesh.  The fresh lavender paint gives the room a nice look.

WE WENT TO OUR HOUSEHELPER’S BIHARI CAMP FOR THIS CELEBRATION.  BIHARIS ARE KNOWN AS GOOD COOKS!

With the new uploading method I haven’t figured out how to post for later dates, so I will post enough photos for the rest of the year for my 366 days posts! Hope to spend some vacation in Nepal from Friday until after the New Year!

This is what typically happens at a Bengali wedding.  People come to eat a nice meal and sit to have photos taken with the bride or groom. This was a Bihari girl marrying a Bengali guy.  Sorry, for no cropping or editing of photos recently.  I am just recovering from a hard drive crash and am trying to catch up on my one photo a day goal.

Dressed up for the occasion!

IFTAR FOOD SELECTION

Our house helper invited us and Craig’s to the Bihari camp for an Iftar meal! This is the meal that is used to break the daily fast during the Holy month of Ramadan.

Piaju, Alu Chop, Beguni, Dates, Mangoes, Pineapple, and Bhut, etc. provided a tasty way to break the fast.
