VENDOR AT THE TOWN HALL MARKET, in Mohammadpur, Dhaka.  Here is where I buy my potatoes, onions, garlic, and cloves.

Day 167

HOTEL GREEN IN TOWN HALL MARKET was where my friend and I had a great breakfast of curried beef, bhaji, and nan ruti.  Little restaurants are called hotels.  Actually this is one of the few that actually has rooms.  This photo shows the hotel from across the street.  I went back this afternoon to get this photo so you don’t see the action out front making the porotas and nan ruti.

More wrap-up things today, four more morning walks, farewells and Sunday evening at 10 heading for the airport.

Day 94


Here is Riley enjoying one of his many cups of tea while he was waiting for his brother’s to finish getting their hair cut!

Riley, examining the look's of his haircut!


Here is Jensen getting his haircut.  There is a photo of one of these barbers cutting my hair in November.  It was taken by friends visiting us.  I’m sure soon there will be new photo to put on their mirror!

The 33.3 taka haircut (50 cents U.S. Funds)


On Thursday, Austin, Marita, Jim (Marita’s brother) and his wife, Normi went to Mymensingh for a day trip.  Therefore, our grandsons spent the day with us, from 5:30 am to 10 pm.  Marita had said I could take them to the barber.  I told them that ever since I had taken them to the barber last June, he asks me where they are, when I get a haircut.  Well here is a series of photos featuring Jensen, the oldest grandson.

HAIRCUT I went up the street to Towne Hall Bazaar to get my haircut. It reminded me of this photo that Craig Mullet took in November.  At this little shop without doors the haircut costs me 30 tk (45 cents U.S.)!

Barber in action!

Day 79


I wanted two new keys to lock our apartment door.  No Wal-Mart so I sent my helper to the market and he had this fellow make one with a file, punch, hack saw, hammer, etc.  After several tries he came to the house so he could try them instead of my helper bringing them home, and taking them back when they didn’t work.  Here he is holding the key blank with his big toe and finger of one hand while running the file with the other hand!!  

A key in the making!
