IMG_5909There was a wedding on the way as well and people were cooking on the street

IMG_5910It is very common here to buy cigarets by one and our guide has been constantly stopping by the little shops to buy them. At one of them I saw a lighter on a thread, very smart 🙂

IMG_5911Need some garlic, ginger or chilis? Here they are

IMG_5912Hanging out with the slum kids while drinking cha (black tea mixed with sweet condensed milk)IMG_5914 IMG_5915 IMG_5916 IMG_5917There was also another wedding and these kids got so colourful because of it.

IMG_5937Because Friday is a day off, everybody was just chilling out and these guys were playing the game. Apparently, for participation you should give 500 taka (which is a lot!) and then the winner gets all the money!

IMG_5938Right outside this workshop there was a big Bangladeshi flag and we decided to take a picture inviting everybody around us to join

IMG_5941The Hindu temple was our next stop

IMG_5943 IMG_5944 IMG_5945 IMG_5947 IMG_5948 IMG_5950But it is a muslim country, remember? So we “visited” a very pretty mosque as wellIMG_5953


Of course we couldn’t get in, so here is a picture of the guys that was sitting outside selling some fish (I guess it was very small eel)

IMG_5954The day was long and the tour covered a lot of amazing places, so more to come tomorrow!
