Mahasen hits Dhaka, photo post

Quick snapshots of Dhaka during Typhoon Mahasen, which fortunately was much milder than feared. 

I thought of putting the window down but felt this somehow  captured how I often feel during these  missions, where there is always a glass  (real or metaphoric) between me and reality

on Bangladesh, bad internet connections and what has surprised me most so far

been back in bangladesh for 5 days and so far my agenda has been severely affected by regular Hartals (general strikes) as well as in-coming Typhoon Mahasen. We've had to change things around back and forth so much it's kind of starting to look like a Pollok painting. Not in a good way. 

Bangladesh is still the only place that makes me cry. Literally. It's slowly but surely turning me into an atheist, and making me loose faith in humanity. 

But the time is short and the internet access crap, so while I get more time and better access to email I can share the one thing that has surprised me most so far.

given that this is a highly religious country I can't imagine this is a joke. ...
