Colorful Wheel

Speeding through the city at 6 am, going through red lights, like they were tissue paper. On a rare occasion the the CNG driver eased into the intersection treating it as a flashing yellow light!  I probably reached my destination in 20 minutes! At 10:00 it was a different story. Leaving Old Dhaka on a bus, we inched along, taking close to an hour to get within rickshaw distance of our apartment. The CNG ride cost me 350 taka ($4.40 U.S.D.) since I didn’t have the correct amount, and he didn’t have the right change! The bus ride cost me 25 taka (.30 USD), and then a 5 minute rickshaw ride for 20 taka (.25 USD). All in all it was a great morning with a nice photowalk with TTLers at the Saderghat Launch Terminal, followed by a nice breakfast of dal, porota, and cha!!

FLYING THROUGH THE AIR AND NEATLY STACKED!

A colourful procession, plus cultural functions added to the glitzy twist of the University’s celebration.

This bus was included in the colorful procession.

THE MORE THE MERRIER

Only one time was I the one with one foot out the door!  That lasted 6-8 minutes till I got crammed farther into the bus

Always room for one more?
