Sonargaon is a town south-east from Dhaka about one hour bus ride that is famous for it architecture.
To get there we met our guide by the National Mosque
Bought the ticket from (as you would think) random guy sitting on the street
And got on the bus with a non-working speedometer (they all are like this)
In Sonargaon we took a big CNG
The first stop was a museum with old stuff and things, things and stuff, but here is a photo of us and some student group
After the museum we went for a walk in the surrounding park and found a toilet. Foreigners toilet. I still don’t know what it was supposed to mean, but it cost us 5 taka (nothing). Belive me or not but I was asked for a selfie while I was washing my hands there.
In the park there were some random monuments like this pioneer-looking guy
Next stop — ruins
And since there are some ruins of the buildings, there are some of the toilets as well.
The toilets are standing by the river, since that is where everything was going to
We posed a bit
And then a bit more. This time with a cow (and apparently three of my chins!). The cow was telling me all Bangladeshi secrets.
While wandering around we met some kids. The mark that the baby has on his head is supposed to protect him.
And this is not the first child that I noticed with a weirdly shaped head. Maybe anybody knows why it is so strange?
Another picture with a local at the cha stop
We are practicing the well-known by Bangladeshis,but very new to us ‘pictures-with-the-bush’ skill. (This one was staged by the local, we still suck!)
Trip back in the comfortable bus (not a regular bus)
In the city you can tell that there is a lychee season now, because its leaves are everywhere
And the highlight of our trip — visit to a local bar!
It is the only place where locals can buy alcohol (foreigners can buy drinks in the clubs and special liquor stores). A can of local barr costs 150 taka (2 euros).
