Nov 11, 2018 (Dhaka, Bangladesh) The work on this trip is beginning in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Dhaka is ranked as the fifth largest city in the world - all very believable when attempting to get around. The traffic-congested city is known for its cycle-rickshaws, cuisine, festivals, historic buildings and the city's modernist national assembly is one of the largest parliament complexes in the world. A badly needed mass transit system is under construction and planned to be operational in the next couple of years. The bustling economic, educational and diplomatic center of the country is located in the Bengal delta, bordered by four major rivers emptying into the Bay of Bengal, which makes it a major port city and also prone to flooding during monsoon season. Bangladesh is made up of 8 divisions and 8 districts and the city of Dhaka is located in same-named division and district with a population of around 20 million. Even with emerging rapid economic growth, 43%!o(MISSING)f Bangladesh still lives in extreme poverty on less than $1.25 per day. Bordering Myanmar, Bangladesh recently became the focus for the major Rohingya refugee crisis and is host of the largest refugee camps in the world with up to 1 million displaced persons.
