Much awaited and procrastinated photographs from our end of summer trip to Bangladesh are here by yours truly. Dhaka ceases to amaze and enthrall me time and time again. It feels like I see the beloved city with a new set of eyes every time. For some of you these images are precious memory, while for some are the everyday mundane, and there are others for whom this might be totally strange. Which ever group you fall under, you must know that this place is precious to a many million of us. Enjoy the rest of the photos!

If you think cabbage soup belongs in the category of "diet foods that don't taste good" then you should definitely give this recipe a shot. What makes this cabbage soup comforting is the addition of beans, lentils and spinach. Oh and if you needed that extra layer of flavor, please indulge yourself with an egg that is poached inside the warmth of this soup.

Only when I pulled up this shot from my camera onto my screen I realized how significantly industrial and digital is the look of Dubai. On our way to Bangladesh, we had a day long layover in the city and I managed to take some snaps while sweat dripped down my back in the humid 40 centigrade dusty heat. So high the dust was that day, that buildings got lost in the horizon as if there was fog. Most images looked to me as if it was a three dimensional rendering. There is hardly any green. Everything is paved. Roads look just recently painted. It seemed like I stepped into my architecture school computer screen. The food was mouthwatering since you will find any cuisine there. Also very interesting was the mix of people. NY's melting pot is nothing to the mix of Dubai. You will see a burqa clad woman right next to one in a bikini and that is not the interesting part. What is amazing is that nobody is judging no one. Nobody is staring at the other. Everyone from all over the world are walking past each other happily. I will stop here and let you see just a few shots from all the frenzied ones for you to get a glimpse of the sky-scraping city.
