Dhaka, The Capital of Bangladesh

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

This is as close to a family man as I ever hope to get. A GF from California and a borrowed baby from the upstairs apartment in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This little boy was very brave and never cried even when the big scary man held him.


Movie posters of women wearing outfits that you will NEVER see on regular ladies in Bangladesh.


Bangladeshis usually eat with their hands and they haven't always got normal sized spoons for us to use.


Art and adventure lovers at opening night of a photo exhibit of mountaineering expeditions.


The little boxes are the snack packs that got handed out.


I think this the Riverboat called the Rocket. You can take multi-day trips down the Padma (Ganges) River to the Sunderbans. Had we more time in Bangladesh, this would have been our next adventure.


Just before Christmas, there was a cold snap in Bangladesh. Unaccustomed to cold weather, people piled on all the clothes they owned.


A cold gray morning in Dhaka.


A woman we met had this picture on her wall and I had to snap a photo as it's the only time I saw women on bicycles in Bangladesh.


Daily traffic chaos.


One pretty girl braved the crowd of little boys to get a closer look at us.


The league of extraordinary bearded men.


A new friend who had us over to his apartment for a visit.


Gretchen and Muntasir, our awesome host in Dhaka.


I tuned our friend's Giant bike and we took it down to the parking garage for a test drive.


Hanging out at the Adventure Store.


I finally got replacement tires and gave the old patched tire to this little guy.


Textile factories are commonplace in Dhaka and they do make efforts to lessen child labor.


We asked this roadside bicycle repair guy to put on our new kickstands.
