Day 108


Day 107

ON PAHELA BAISHAKH NOT EVERYONE was dressed in red and other bright colors.

This woman and her son were scavenging for recyclable items to sell.  When he saw me talking a photo he quick told her, so she turned around and faced me. 

This man probably was dressed in his finest, since that is probably he owned.  I suppose it kept him warm at night and kept the sun from beating on his body during the day.  He probably thought the New Year’s Day celebrators might share with him!

EVEN SMALL MANUAL DRIVEN ferris wheels have fares. In Bangla it is a nagordola.   10 taka (15 Cents) will get you a short “wild” ride!
