Apparently we’re on hiatus around here, although I’m not sure if it’s still a hiatus after months of inactivity. Anyways – not that it’s a great excuse – but working has gotten in the way of blogging, and especially interferes with making excursions to find interesting photos for the blog. Maybe when I’ve built up a collection of pictures again I can start posting them, til then … apologies for the break.
This is a roadside restaurant for rickshaw drivers and others who are looking for the basics – bananas, bread, and a cigarette. (Others nearby offered slightly more filling options, including eggs and noodles.) Because of the food price increases, rice has become unaffordable for people at the lowest income levels – like rickshaw drivers. They might only eat bananas and biscuits after pedaling their rickshaw around all day in the sun.
We had lunch in a restaurant overlooking Gulshan Circle 2 today, so I could take some semi-aerial pictures of the circle. Only half of the actual circle in shown here, to give a little bit more detail. This was lunchtime on a Sunday, the first day of the workweek here. (We were off for Columbus Day. Thanks Columbus!) Anyways, you can see tons of people waiting for the bus, and get a general idea of the traffic flow.
