Cox's Bazar Beach, Bangladesh

Photo, Pictures of, Images, Picture
(November 2011)

Bangladesh women's beachwear for the very few ladies who venture into the water. No bikinis on this beach!


Bangladeshis like to tell you that Cox's Bazar is the longest sandy beach in the world.


There is a yearly surfing contest in Cox's Bazar and even a women's surfing team. I'm not sure if this is standard surfing wear.


I wasn't too impressed with the muddy sand at Cox's Bazar.


Visitors to the beach usually wander around splashing their ankles in the water and taking photos.


My absolute favorite daily snack- spicy fried peas.


The sunsets in Cox's Bazar are pretty spectacular.


The man giving us the thumbs up is deaf. He had his own invented sign language and made himself understood pretty well.


Bangladesh cycle rickshaws are used to transport people and cargo everyday.


An interesting homemade welder. The bellows blows air onto the bicycle frame which is surrounded by bits of coal to cook up the weld.


Another homemade welder.


Roadside bicycle and rickshaw repairs. These guys are truing the steel wheel with a hammer.


I drew a huge crowd while buying petrol for my MSR stove.


The guy sitting with me is a local business man who wanted to drink tea with us. It's very common to see dyed orange beards like the gentleman's in the background.


This man invited us into his house for lunch. He put on his cool shades and posed with his beautiful daughter for this photo.


Young businessman selling his wares.


The best explanation we could come up with for dyeing the sheep pink was to make them more visible to motorists. Either that, or to identify the ownership.


An interesting wall mural illustrating trickle down economics.


Fantastically decorated rickshaw.


Snake oil for sale.
