so how is it in Bangladesh I'd what you all really want to know,I must admit we were s little concerned but in the event the pick up at the airport was dpoy on and we were quickly through the formalities and heading to our hotel,the rooms were large and comfortable in a middle range dort of way ,we actually had dinner at the hotak last night I eventually got rid of the indigestion and next meal we are going to try to get to a better hotel to eat although they are a taxi ride away. I've got nibbles if we decide to stick to our booze stocks. the countrywide transport blockade is continuing plus a nationwide hartal or in forced strike in its second day but for all this the city is quite normal with bus services running plus the trains although the Chittagong express was derailed yet again yesterday and we make that trip on Wednesday fingers crossed.
there are masses of double deckers around although the new deckers from past three years look ablouy fifty years old already and the older ones are sparse especially the half cabs running for the university service we have only seem two of these,everything in brtc livery. we have heard that some of the withdrawn volvos are elsewhere and will have a look for them tomorrow. its all very friendly, the ate policevamd military everywhere bit like everyone else just want to get in on the picture and see the video etc.
martin has had a good haul of tickitsvsonfar,I got my right toes run over this morning but no damage done. time for a shower and so myself out. the hotel will let us leave our main lugguage here on Wednesday when we go to Chittagong and I'll let them do my lsundrty while I'm away we have two nights at Chittagong where I'm hoping to get dime trucks filmed perhaps more in Khulna later. we picked up the rocket paddle steamer tickets today they have fancy glossy brochure I think it is now getting aimed more for tourists.
hunting Volvo buses and outer bus station tomorrow plus may get a chance to find some trucks locations,lots of Bedford tj and older as well as Indian modern stuff.
