I haven’t had much of a chance to take photos yet, but Dhaka is so interesting that even my feeble attempts seemed worth posting. Those rickshaws I mentioned earlier? They’re decorated all over:
…the seat and the floorboard. The back too, but I couldn’t get a shot of it, as this one is permanently parked in a corner of the school library.
The Lakeshore hotel has a rooftop swimming pool. I spotted this bird there and was quite taken by its long tail…
Anyone know what kind of bird it is?
Sculpture in the lobby of the Lakeshore.
Orchid plant blooming at the American club (ARA) in Dhaka.
Spotted in traffic: a pedal-cart transporting bamboo rods…
…that were at least 25 feet long!
Finished first day of presentations: kindergarten, 8th grade, and the whole high school, all great audiences. Tomorrow: 1st, 3rd, & 7th grade. Looking forward to meeting more readers!
