Have a look at the view from out guesthouse. There were only 5 rooms, 3 of which were occupied by our group.
We even had coconuts on our tree, see there?
First thing in the morning we went to rent bikes at the place what was also a rickshaw art center
And the adventure began! Kids would see us on the other side and thenl run along the river shouting “bye” or “hi”
And what do we see around? Rice fields, people working hard, goats and very very nice people.
I was trying to pet a goat and first this lady (you see her white fingers, that’s for that green leaf, paan, that is also why she has such teeth) was helping me to catch one and then the boys brought me this guy
On the bikes we got to the wetlands where we were taken on a boat ride
It was very quite, very beautiful and very hot.
We had our lunch at one of the fisherman’s house. They are six brothers living together and the family is considered to be pretty wealthy. The house was built very recently. And yes, in Bangladesh you eat with your hands (unless you are in the western parts).
I like their ‘wardrobe’.
Here are our bikes standing by the house. They were very heavy
The kids were of course very excited and there was a lot of picture taking and staring
Here is a D&G shirt (says Made in Italy)
I think I mentioned before that one doesn’t have to be a professional photographer to take great pictures. A better camera would help though
In the city I stopped by the bamboo stall to buy a traditional Bangla hat and made a friend
After 10 minutes by the stall we got some attention (just on one side!)
On the way from the village we also found a little kitten on the road and kept her. She really loved the hat
Next stop — seven layer tea. Tasted and smelled like cocoa in my kindergarden
Look inside any street — people sewing
Of course some real tea
And the train back.
A couple of pineapples for a ride (15 take each, e.g. 15 euro cents)
A rare albino person
And our friends seeing us off. They are great.
Here is a video of the tea gardens we were passing by on the way back and the interior od the train (obviously, high class)
