I'm sorry that these pictures turned out so small! Something keeps happening when I try to upload them in a larger size.
This is my best shot (we were driving) of one of the many brick factories that dot the water/field covered landscape. Tamanna explained that the governement demands they be built a certain distance away from towns, and that the tower (which I didn't capture much of) must be 90 meters high. I'm not sure if either of these regulations were met however, at least, I'm not sure how one judges where a town ends around here, because there are people living just about everywhere.
These children found me very interesting. Their big eyes barely blinked as they watched my every move. I felt very self-conscious, and was relieved when my smile was eventually returned with gap-toothed grins.
This picture is how I will always remember Bangladesh. Though it is missing the fisherman/farmer, with his wide, pointed hat, it is how most of rural Sylhet looks.
