Departing Dhaka

Sadarghat is the name of the boat terminal in Old Dhaka. It's absolutely crazy crowded. After a two-hour car ride through Dhaka, I had about 30 minutes to spare before the steamer left the station. Here are some sights:

With so many waterways, boats are used to transport everything from goods to people.

Shanties on the shore.

I didn't know there were so many different types of bananas. They're much sweeter than ours in the U.S.

Yes, they're smiling at me - the crazy tourist.

Sounds like you spent a lot of times on rickshaws, cabbies, vans, and steamers. All you needed was a mule to round the experience out! ;-)
