Wearing a Salwaar Kameez or at least this is what it kind of looks like
I've been in Dhaka for about a month & everything is still strange. The past few weeks have involved going around the city and trying to familiarize myself with my new sorroundigs. I'm glad that I'll be starting a language course in a few weeks so maybe that will make life a little easier. My days are still filled with frustration and insecurity because I'm not quite sure of anything yet. I'm becoming homesick and I constently have to remind myself that "it's all part of the experience".
We had a group from Norway which stayed here at the YWCA guest house for 10 days. It was a bit refreshing seeing them again and just hanging out with them althought most of them are much younger than I am. We did a lot together and in a space of just four weeks, I've already visited many places outside Dhaka and got to see just what it is that the YWCA is doing for communities and I must say that it's quite impressive.
