Aug 24, 2012 - Back to Dhaka

8-24 Okay, this is the 1st time I've used any caution putting my hands out the window of a bus. A look at the sides of the buses clearly indicates how close they come to one another (majorly scraped and indented, ha). Particularly telling of the speed we travelled was the fact that our bus did ALL the passing. Not one other vehicle passed us while we were moving! The ride would have been only 5 1/2 hours but when we got within 2 km of the station a traffic jam caused us to sit in a line for an hour and twenty minutes creeping up to where we...

Aug 21, 2012 - Dhaka

8-21 Wiki Info Dhaka Bon has lost her head lamp, apparently left a pocket unlocked when we left the hotel yesterday and discovered that it was missing while packing to leave. Bus picks us up at 8 but then proceeds to 3 other locations and waits for passengers (all have pre-purchased tickets)...by 9 we finally drive out of Bogra. SPEED is the name of the game on these roads but I think the Bangladeshi people on the road are trained/conditioned by hearing the air horns blaring to 'get outa the way'! Just amazes me how fast they bomb thru...

Dec 5, 2011 - Banksy Prints - Are They Readily Accessible?

For years, the skill of Banksy has been appreciated by individuals in britain, and most recently, around the globe. His pieces are getting to be in incredibly sought after demand as increasing numbers of people discover the beauty and interpretation behind all of his work. At present, original pieces are sold at exceptionally high prices, whilst replicas can be purchased at a reasonable cost. Banksy has evaded the public since his artwork was initially identified, but as his worldwide recognition is continually climbing, he will be unable...

Dec 1, 2011 - Getting Rid of Molds on Rubber Roofing

Molds are one of the common problems in most roofing materials as these are the common signs of moisture which contributes to the gradual degeneration of the roof. Although a roofing system was designed to keep water properly flushed off in order to avoid any dripping into the house, problems tend to come along even to the well-maintained buildings. In the prevention of mold, the most important thing is to get rid of any visible buildup to avoid having bigger problems in the long run. Getting rid of molds on your rubber roofing can be...

Sep 21, 2009 - Arrive in Dhaka

21-09-09 We start our adventure in the vibrant Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. We arrive in the morning and hope to get our hotel room - we have flown from Glasgow via Dubai and will no doubt be ready for a snooze. Hopefully in the afernoon we will do a bit of sightseeing on our own - perhaps a walking tour of Old Dhaka. 22-09-09 The tour proper does not start until 6pm today when we meet the others in the group so another day's sightseeing on our own. 23-09-09 The city is the commercial hub of a still primarily rural country and growing at a...

Jun 1, 2009 - Long time no update....sorry!

Hi everybody, So sorry for the long silence from sunny (v humid) Bangladesh. I suppose its a sign of how well that we have settled into a routine here that we havn't been better at keeping in contact over the last few weeks since we returned from our break - however AMAZING things have been happening! Firstly, on the business side the product has just gone from strength to strength and although delayed by some re-design issues, we are going into production in the next four weeks. After a great sales trip to the UK (not me...) we have been...

Oct 23, 2008 - Melbourne/Singapore/Dhaka

Took 23 hours between leaving Bill & Barb's house in Melbourne, and having a beer with Doug in Dhaka, Bangladesh, feeling just slightly shagged! Doug and Genevieve are friends at the Australian High Commission and Gen is solely responsible for us being here, as a result of dinner and travelling tales at La Porchetta in North Hobart..... Dhaka is very noisy, crowded, steamy, poverty-stricken but, at this stage, absolutely fascinating. We're constantly assailed by beggers, knocking on the car windows, running after us in the streets etc as we...

Aug 30, 2008 - Dhaka

Big cities in the Indian subcontinent are very crowded and polluted, and I can tell you that Dhaka is the worst I've come across. It's traffic just has to be the most congested in the world; just crossing the road requires great skill in timing and nerves of steel. Of course obeying all traffic lights and signs is optional. And then there are the beggars - more numerous than I have ever come across and annoyingly persistent, but then again they have no choice. Small gangs of children ambush cars and rickshaws at traffic lights knocking on...

Nov 4, 2007 - Travel to Dhaka, Bangladesh

I was up very early since I had to be in the airport at 6:30 and it lakes at least 45 minutes from the hotel to the airport. I was booked on "Kingfisher Airline" to Kolkata and it was one of the most enjoyable flights I have had for a long time. The service was incredible and a great breakfast was served. The most beautiful flight attendants were so friendly and looked great in their saris. I had to wait five hours in the airport before my next flight to Dhaka so I utilized the time in a great internet cafe to catch up on my "Journal". The...
