Bangladesh: A Very Long Day (Part 3) Continues


Six hours. Did I forget to tell you that? It seemed to me like it was a short ride because I was entertained by the passing scenery and the scenes I saw alongside the tracks. The experience was very enriching. I saw so many things, so many scenes, so many beautiful places that hit me deep. It was very spiritual. I felt blessed.

On on that note, let me show you the places I've seen, the scenes I've witnessed and the faces of people that touched me and made my trip very special. It would take extreme discipline on my part not to post all the pictures I took.

At the many train stops along the way, I captured these scenes:

Rainclouds followed us. People "ride free" atop the trains, not allowed but authorities could not police every single train.
