Well it has only been our first night and this trip to Dhaka has already come up with some surprises! Before going out to dinner my colleague asked a hotel employee at the front desk if he could recommend a nice restaurant. It turns out that the gentleman we asked was actually the hotel owner, and instead of suggesting a restaurant he said we should join the wedding banquet of one of the hotel staff. So we piled into the hotel van with lots of other staff, and ended up having a wonderful evening with some very kind and gracious people. Goodness I didn't expect to be included in the wedding photo. ; )
