Personal highlights

  1. Dhaka: welcome to the capital of Bangladesh, home of over 14m people!
  2. Traffic: streets are crowded with cars, tuctucs, rickshaws and people
  3. People: there are so many people and most of them are super friendly!
  4. TucTuc: really affordable and safe - but you have to negotiate hard
  5. Food: generally very delicious, especially the Biriyani and Lassie
