Drinking chai before starting the day and a couple of times throughout the day is very much integrated into Bangladeshi’s culture.
The bright colours with strong outlines are very much present on the streets of Bangladesh decorating rickshaws, trucks, buses and other public transportation. Some register on making rickshaw paintings in a workshop space downtown Old Dhaka.
When the subject is football, the Bangladeshis cheer either to Brazil or Argentina. I have not imagined until experienced being there during 2014’s World Cup. Streets throughout the country had Brazilian flags everywhere. I felt even more blessed and welcomed to intense and beautiful Bangladesh. Some of the decoration permanently stay on walls. Bangladesh I love your smile and love your style!
