On the streets of Dhaka, Bangladesh...about 0900...walking is still a very popular mode of transport.
This is a typical exterior skin of a Dhaka, Bangladesh bus...it carries its life history in the manner of a family's kitchen table.
Dhaka at night
Felt like a right yob carrying this home from the pizza shop, didn't I!
Those dinner plates give some idea of how big this thing is. I doubt any other traveler could have voyaged in the lift with me and It.
It had tasty dollops of anchovies here and there, but the dominant taste was black olive...filled three enthusiastic eaters, and slid down rather well with the aid of a couple of bottles of very decent Spanish red.
Singapore is not exactly a "hardship post"...
The Penny Black Public House is about 2 km along the Singapore river from our apartment...in the evening we sometimes stroll there, take a break and enjoy a 1/2 pint of Kilkenny light ale while watching other strollers in short dresses, then stroll back.
Its a pleasant outing.
The ale costs S$15 for a 1/2 pint, which seems a bit steep when compared with S$6 for the same product in the local supermarket...and especially steep when compared with S$1.30 for 1/2 pint of a decent local brew in Bangkok.
Not complaining...just saying... :)
