Bangladesh

Bangladesh, fireplaces, fried chicken and hospitality

Bangladés, la Pakistán Oriental ( Bangladesh )


We found three things throughout the country and abundantly. Industry, much of it foreign, especially multinational, installed without a problem in the country, the conditions are advantageous and derisory prices of production. No matter how much reach to contaminate, they have a free hand to do whatever they want..

Pollution is a common problem in fast-growing countries, the same citizens pull everything everywhere, as if there were no tomorrow, as if like it somehow the small dump with rats in each corner. Obviously they would like to live in paradise, as almost everyone, but lack organization, money, social awareness and official sites.

No doubt they enjoy much more than food, they eat with their hands, without cutlery, playing and mixing thoroughly all the food on the plate. Clean-up is the hands after eating in the curtains of the bus, on scarf,… No matter, even in Bengali films they preach with example. The truth is that it becomes fun to see the world upside down, but to a certain extent. They have different criteria to our what is really clean or dirty, among other things, but I don't want to extend. The population is not concerned with ecology, This forms a perfect breeding ground for fireplaces continue spitting smoke outdoors.

For some strange reason and as I have said many Bengalis, the fried chicken with hot sauce to rage is part of the cuisine of the country culture for many years. This famous bengali recipe should add any type of frying as e.g. samosas. Fried chicken can be found anywhere, crowd restaurants one after the other selling the same; serve it with rice or cucumber, I also love them and sell it as an appetizer at any corner.

Another aspect that caught my attention is the extreme curiosity of the Bengali people; many of them you stare at all times and you review top down, as a movie star, Sometimes it becomes tedious to walk because all are over, greeting, asking to take pictures, Exchange a few words or wanting to sell something… you have to have patience and know that you have hurry, If you stop to say hello to all who ask for it you are not leaving the same street in hours, they stand out for their extreme kindness and hospitality.
Among them, they discuss many times and don't hide, like scream when they do, attention. It seems that they will kill, but after a heated discussion they are reconciled, as babies of teta.

Bangladesh has one of the largest Muslim populations in the world, with the permission of Indonesia. It is both the religious fervor which often cars and buses stop at the nearest mosque at the time of the prayer.

Worst luck run women, especially Muslim women. They have a huge list of "things that they cannot do" or rules to follow as for example dress properly, do not leave the House unaccompanied by anyone of the male sex and many others that I will not mention.

I am going to relate a case which unfortunately I could see while traveling by bus. I could see how a Muslim young man responds to a couple their attitude, they were asleep, sitting beside her, with the head supported each other, I have no doubt a moment awaken them to correct its action. It was also often to speak or see how a friend slept, also Muslim and long beards that had just know, fell you the slime just talk to him.

Transport is crazy, I think that I never before spent so much fear traveling. Thousands of people die a year inside the bus, that is why I recommend using alternative such as boat or train transport, much slower but safer. I have suffered in my flesh overtaking of off-road double-decker buses, getting into mud roads to 80 per hour, regardless of anything the passers-by that there could be. The only rule of driving is : how much larger is the vehicle more preference it has and this rule is not always fulfilled. The best thing I could do in these cases is not to look at what drivers do and try to get over the roaches that infest most coaches.
The State of vehicles is poor, most have huge holes and lack of parts essential for driving, oxide product, it rots the metal. In fact almost lost the suitcase, I was in the subject trunk of a single thread when we arrived at destination, There was a gaping hole in the roof, became miracle.

Despite the sorry state of the vehicles in Bangladesh there is an enviable appearance, the extensive fleet of electric transport or gas. The thousands of rickshaws that circulate, especially in cities, they are electric and motor vehicles, I mean small taxis or CNG, all work with compressed gas, There are hundreds of gas stations of liquefied gas. In this aspect, they are much more advanced than other countries.

Another aspect to keep in mind is that there are people asking for money, even some transsexuals, It is customary to give them some money, they are usually very friendly and safe will make you complicit in a joke. Levels of begging are not comparable to the damage the India, where I've seen to cry more than one visitor tired of that the world is over, in Bangladesh it is tolerable and sometimes even fun if you take it with humor. In fact will you paste all the beggars, a few less funny than others, they will ignore the rest of the inhabitants to focus on tourists, “a business in the short term” , their level of insistence sometimes hates. If you don't want to give money at the time it is best pouting, say a resounding NO and ignore them, you will then leave in peace.


Bangladesh is a magical place of truth, still to be discovered, with wonderful people, sure that it enjoy !
