Summer Travel 2012-Bangladesh

Did I mention how hot and humid it was in Bangladesh (BD)??! Yes, this little country is quite close to the equator...and so you can imagine the steam bath I took everyday! Labor is cheap and plenty. One day I noted a construction site, next to which the day laborers were taking a rest. The midday sun was beating down on them so they had taken the shirts off and were just resting. Parked next to them were their carts on which they carried their bricks and any other loads for construction that was taking place at that site.

Summer Travel to Bangladesh

I landed on a Friday and the streets were empty - because being a Muslim country their Friday is our Sunday (pray at the mosque). The ride home was quite calm and the day came when I was finally over my jet lag and went out. No one follows any traffic rules, everyone is everywhere all over the place... cars moving at ants pace and breaking and jerking all the time! HELP... I need my chiropractor! Since we were so long sitting in traffic, I got the chance to do some sketching-

Summer Travels 2012

Well it has been almost a week since I returned from Bangladesh. Due to not having much internet access, I was unable to blog- so now I am back in town and am ready to share my wonderful ( and sometimes not) trip all the way across the seas to Bangladesh, going through more than two days worth of hours at the airport, planes, lounges and what nots!
Here are some drawings of faces during my travel... Drawings of the city soon...
