Heading towards adventure.
The are 196 countries in the world.
I am really happy to say that I have visited a handful of them and am enjoying the process of checking each one off my list.
While it feels like a waiting game some days at home when I am editing through the deep recesses of my hard drive. I hope I never stop in wonder to marvel and be expectant at these opportunities and amazing things I get to see.
Light at dusk and sights of traffic in Jessore, taken before crossing the street to hop into my van. This is one of my favourites from Bangladesh.
Without further ado, here are postcards from Bangladesh. Taken in dusty streets with tropical humidity, surrounded by the sound of prayer call, taken beside women clad in colour saris and rickshaw drivers who distractedly wave you down in this beautiful and mysterious country that has captured my heart in more ways than photos.
Smiling boy wearing his prayer hat. Taken in a shrimp processing factory in Chila. Visiting a local village by the Pushar river in Khulna. I love how the green in her dress matches the tree.
Made our driver stop for shots on our way to the airoport. A snapshot of the green and lush river country Bangladesh is known for.
The cutest boy from the village and a baby goat with the most spindly legs. I have found a new love for goats after visiting India and Bangladesh.
Local school children on their way home from school. I found him saluting our gang of security guards that tail us wherever we go and asked him to pose for this shot.
Bangladesh you were a marvellous journey. I leave with fresh eyes and a new perspective on different cultures and countries. I hope I will never lose the ability to find rich beauty in little places and in the humanity of people I have met here.
Till next time.
