The definition of a developing country (Bangladesh #2)

I expected to be shocked in India, and therefore it did not hit me that hard.

Bangladesh is different. Not many traffic lights anywhere, not much road either. A lot of dirt as roads. Cars drove in both sides of a barely-distinguishable road, shared with bicycle rickshaws and pedestrians.

Similar to my awe of Sri Lanka’s countryside, I couldn’t take my eyes off the sights, and thus did not take many photos.

You can imagine how dark this will be at night. No lights.

This is what the roads I drove on typically looked like. A full video is available here:

I’m curious to see what Dhaka will look like five, ten years from now. There is a lot of construction, and a lot of corporations are coming in, but boy, it is a scary place at the moment.
