Dhaka Day One
Dhaka... where do I begin? Our first day here in Dhaka I was feeling a bit jet lagged and overwhelmed. But meeting the people at Prokritee, and learning about all the fair trade projects was so inspiring, it was the perfect way to start the trip.
There are people EVERYWHERE here. I live close to LA, so you think I'd be used to dense living, but this blows LA out of the water... Dhaka is so densely packed... and the traffic - its' what everyone said it would be and more. It took us an hour to get to the Prokritee office, and it was about 3.5 miles away.
Anyway, I feel so grateful to be here. I am loving it more than I thought I would. And, I can't wait to post photos from the villages that we visited over the last couple of days... AMAZING.
