Dhaka Rickshaw Fiesta Week 2014 started of with two races.  It was a fun event.  No I didn’t pull a rickshaw!  The relay had 21 rickshaws and 84 rickshaw pullers.

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.
