    went to Bang 30 years ago for first time and made many more trips after that , not a place for 99% of the tourist — had to stay in the city and when u left the airport u were surrounded by a crowd of locals who were without arms or feet etc –I as an American gave to them a few a few dollars– YOU CAN BELIEVE THE HUNDREDS THAT ALMOST ATTACKED ME

    YOU DID THE RIGHT THING TO EAT WITH UR HANDS- EVEN IF THEY WERE NOT SO CLEAN , THE COUNTRY BACK THEN WAS FILTHY

    THIS WAS A LONG TIME AGO , HOPEFULLY IT HAS IMPROVED A LITTLE – IF U DO NOT LIKE SOMEONE — SEND THEM TO BANG FOR A WEEK

    Seth, I read your blog regularly and am from Dhaka, although now call DC my home. Thank you for this post and for highlighting the life, color, and vibrancy of my city. Unfortunately Bangladesh still faces many challenges as a developing country and I wish there were more tourists / bloggers visiting and writing about Bangladesh. Next time you go, I hope you get to visit outside Dhaka among the lush villages, beaches, tea estates, and jungles. Dhaka can be an overwhelming place, but glad you enjoyed yourself.

    That meal you eat looks like a biryani – esp. if it was already ready in a big bucket and served with some crunchy salad. One of my favorite meals is a nice spicy biryani – there are almost 40-50 variations that I know of (and they taste massively different)!
