I wish a Happy Bengali New Year to All My Friends in Bangladesh!

I confess I was busy getting my income tax report ready to file to meet tomorrow’s deadline. I guess I do have an automatic 2 month extension, but I’d rather not take it.  Anyway, we heard marchers outside on the street, so I headed out and grabbed a rickshaw to catch them on Sir Sayeed Rd.  Then I decided since I was out to go to Manik Mia, so I asked the rickshaw wallah to take me there (http://www.thedailystar.net/beta2/news/nation-mingles-with-baishakh-colours/) .  The lanes on both sides of the median were painted the whole way from Mirpur Rd. to the circle where Manik Mia splits.  It was nice to take a break and see the festive air of the city.  The photo of me was taken by the rickshaw wallah!

I hope this is a great year for Bangladesh in spite of the many hartals, demonstrations, etc. recently.

FIVE YEARS IN BANGLADESH

SOMETIME IN OUR FIRST YEAR I PICKED UP THIS STICKER AT PIZZA HUT”S CELEBRATION OF 5 YEARS IN BANGLADESH!

I hoped to be able to celebrate 5 years in Bangladesh like Pizza Hut did.

We celebrated by bringing in Chinese food from the Midnight Sun restaurant.

My wish to be in Bangladesh at least five years came true!! Whoopeee!

Day 139

WAITING FOR THE GROOM TO ENTER the reception hall, and toss glitter on him.  They even had some left and tossed it on me after I went inside.  The one young boy apologized, probably for his little sister, but I told him it was no problem.
