Bangladesh after 11 years
I was worried with the view from the plane. It looked like bangladesh has grown bald spots. Turns out there is still some green and lakes left in Dhaka.
At Dhanmondi lake:
Boat tour over Buriganga river at sunset:
The reason I'm here in 35+ degrees heat and 80% humidity- its ideal condition for ripening of my favourite fruit that I hvn't had in 11 yrs, Kathal or Jackfruit:
My favourite bengali junk food- Fuchka= 'ChanaMasala in fried shells with tamarind water':
Boshundhara City in Dhaka- some 8 level central air conditioned shopping complex supposed to be one of the largest in Asia.
Food court of Boshundhara city occupies an entire floor and has international cuisine- all of them serve the same menu of burgers, fries, pizza, fried chicken and all kinds of bengali food like chotpoti, fuchka, faluda
The men in Bangladesh have become 'Metrosexual as well'. There are Men's version of 'Fair and Lovely'= face bleaching/whitening cream, parlours and this ad in some random bengali magazine caught my eye :D
'Cute' is a cosmetic brand in Bangladesh. But in this case the name might be its downfall.
More updates soon.
